THE schedule: 

October 7 — Washburn at Manhat- 

October 14 — Washington at St. 

October 21 — Oklahoma at Nor- 

October 28 — Kansas at Manhat- 
tan (Homecoming). 

November 4 — Missouri at Colum- 

November 11 — Ames at Manhat- 

November 18 — Nebraska at Lin- 

November 30 — Texas Christian 
university at Manhattan. 

The Aggie football team, like the 
"Manhattan section" of the stadium 
is now under course of con- 
Btruction. The foundation is laid, 
material is on hand, and substantial 
progress Is being made. But beyond 
that, considerable room for specula- 
tion is allowed. 

Several stars left school never to 
return, last year. Captain Cleland, 
Winter, Schmitz, and Stauffer will 
be missed. Huston was expected 
back to bolster up the left side of 
the Aggie line, but he didn't show 
up for registration. The Aggies 
must depend upon new material for 
center. The team is handicapped 
for space, sharinj;- the formerly 'Ade- 
quate athletic field with the stad- 
ium contractor who has sprawled 
his material, necessarily, over about 
two thirds of the field. The squad is 
still using the old field. 


With only two weeks to whip his 
team into shape for Washburn here 
October 7, Head Coach Bachman and 
his assistant coaches. Captain Jack- 
son, Doctor Muldoon, Doctor Holtz, 
and Ted Curtiss, are pushing the 
squad of 45 ellgibles to the limit of 
their endurance. 

The layout, as a fan sees It, is 
indicated by the following: 

Tom Sebring, Gardner, right end, 
is a good, consistent football player 
with two years of experience, a can- 
didate who should have little trouble 
in obtaining and holding his pos- 
ition, though Arthur Doolan and Earl 
Manker of Manhattan and S. P. Gatz 
of McPherson, from last year's 
Frosh, are working hard to oust him. 

At left end, H. G. Webber, Dodge 
City, looks most promising. Web- 
ber substituted last year. Lylo 
Munn, Norton; C. E. Minner, Sol- 
dier: Harold Glllman. Sfillna; and 
J. F. Gartner, Manhattan, are the 
other candidates for this position. 

For left tackle, James Ewing, 
lola; L. M. Leitor, Protection; J. W. 
Ballard, Almena; and Joe Qulnn, 
Wichita, all from last year's fresh- 
man squad are out. This^may be a 
sore spot on the team, for there is no 
veteran out for the position. 

R. M. Nichols, through his won- 
derful charging offensive and his 
staunch defensive, won a letter last 
year. Nick is from Osage City and 
will be back in the line this year 
unless J. E. Franz, Manhattan, H. 
J. Stalb, Turon, or John Henry, 
Glasco, beat him out. 


Captain "Russian" Ray Hahn, 
Clay Center, all valley guard last 
year, and captain for 1922, has to 
compete with John Stelner, White- 
water, H. J. Counsell, Garden City, 

K. I. Church, Manhattan, and A. D. 
Mueller, Hanover, for his old pos- 
ition at left guard. It will take a 
mighty good man to oust Hahn, as 
his record proves. 

Ira Schindler, Valley Falls, a let- 
ter man of last year, will probably 
play at right guard with L. A. Lamb, 
Ford, and R. A. Laswell, Manhattan, 
as understudies. 

An interesting little battle is be- 
ing staged between Ronald Hutton, 
Manhattan, and Woody Perham, lola, 
for the honor of holding down center 
position left vacant by "Shifty" Cle- 
land. Both men are from last year's 


The back field prospectus reads 
much the same as did last year's, 
except that a number of new men 
have been added to the roster. Burr 
Swartz, Hiawatha, one of the best 
quarterbacks in the valley last year, 
"Swede" Axllne, Wichita, quarter in 
'20, C. B. Cox, Sedgwick, and E. D. 
Ward, Elmsdale, of the '21 year- 
lings, will try out for pilot. 

A. R. Stark, Goodland, one of last 
year's best halfs will have Donald 
Yandall, Wilson, R. J. Shaw, Med- 
icine Lodge, and John Brown, Blue 
Rapids, to support him. "Ding" 
Burton, Wichita, who owns one of 
the stickiest pair of hands in the 
valley when it comes to hanging on 
to a forward pass, will most prob- 
ably show C. A. Brandley, Manhat- 
tan, A. F. Rheburg, Niles, and B. 
Rucker, Burdette, the way at right 
half. And "Susie" Sears, who is ex- 
pected to put In a late appearance 
from his home In Eureka, wltHiaTe 
A. W. Butcher, Solomon, V. C. Clem- 
ents, Havensville, and H. B. Port- 
nelr, Phillipsburg, to fight for his 
position at fullback. 




Rooflnff Ordered Two Montha Ago StUI

Houara Taxed 

Delay in the shipping of slate 
roofing from Vermont prevented the 
completion of the new K. S. A. C. 
cafeteria building in time for the 
opening of college. The delay was 
attributed to the railroad strike. 
The material has been on the road 
more than two months. It had 
reached Davenport, Iowa, August 30, 
but the contractors of the structure 
have no assurance that it will be 
delivered within any stated time. If 
the roofing is delivered in Manhat- 
tan within the next two weeks the 
cafeteria probably will be opened 
some time in October. 

The cafeteria was housed in Kedzie 
hall which is now occupied by the 
departments of English and indus- 
trial journalism. The cafeteria e- 
qnlpmont was moved from the build- 
ing in August, the vacated rooms 
being occupied immediately by the 
print shop and ofTicos of the English 
and journalism departments. It was 
thought that the cafeteria would be 
ready for occupation September 10. 

Local restaurants and boarding 
houses are taxed to care for in- 
creased business resulting from the 
closing of the cafeteria. Additional 
accommodations have been provided 
for serving students in the barracks 
where meals are provided by the col- 
lege at cost. 

Brttlah Regard Americana aa Addicted

Literature, He Saya 

What do the English think of us? 

This question was answered in the 
student assembly Tuesday by Robert 
W. Conover, professor of English, 
who spent some weeks in England In 
the summer and- made a special ef- 
fort to get at British public opinion. 
Here, according to Professor Con- 
over, are some of the opinions that 
the English Ivold of Americans: 

We are hopelessly addicted to jazz 
and the types of dancing that go 
with It. 

We still think that there is a pan- 
acea — usually a legal one — for all 


We are intolerant of minority op- 
inion and afraid of discussion. 

In political, social, and industrial 
matters we have not developed as 
England has, being in our laws on 
such matters about where England 
was 50 years ago. 

We are still provincial in litera- 
ture, Poe and Whitman being the 
only outstanding literary figures 
that we have produced. 

We have excelled in technical lines 
and in the scientific study of ed- 
ucational processes. 


We are not so much interested in 
ab Bt r aet J ' iit,Mt:g-a s -^ ^ M e trto-Pei^ 
we do not care so much what is right 
or wrong so long as it does not af- 
fect us or our friends. 

We are to a considerable extent 
hostile to England. 

From the_ English, Professor Con- 
over holds, we can learn much in 
toleration of differences in customs, 
opinions, and other matters. They 
are ready, he said, to examine their 
own attitude where we differ with 

The English are seeking to influ- 
ence public opinion in this country 
because of their belief that senti- 
ment is unfavorable to them. Pro- 
fessor Conover stated. Such efforts 
arc not reprehensH)Ie, he holds, pro- 
vided Americans recognize them as 
such'. He condemned all propagan- 
da that conceals its real purpose.

I'ollege AdoptM PInn Heoommended by 
Phi Kappa Phi 

Scholarship standards of the Kan- 
sas State Agricultural college will be- 
come higher with the adoption at the 
beginning of the fall semester of a 
new point system for grading the 
work of students. Under the new 
plan, which was worked out and 
recommended to the faculty for 
adoption by Phi Kappa Phi, it will 
be impossible for a student to grad- 
uate if his average grade for the four 
year period of his college residence 
is less than "M". 

The outline of the plan, which is 
now in effect, is as follows: 

1. For each semester credit of 
Vo?int8fei^nisa;"a'^ttra6tft shall receive' 
points according to the grades at- 
tained on the following scheme: 
Grade Points 

E 3 

G 2 

M 1 

P or lower 

2. For graduation the total re- 
quirement in points shall be the same 
as in credits, with the further pro- 
vision that required total number of 
points made in the junior and senior 
subjects shall be the same as the to- 
tal number of credits required in 
these subjects. 

3. Above the freshman year, clas- 
sification shall be based on the same 
requirements in points as in credits. 

4. Seniors meeting the gradua- 
tion requirement In credits but fail- 
ing to meet it in points, shall take 
further courses designated by the 
dean of the division in which their 
major work lies, until the require- 
ment in points is met.

Agricultural students of Kansas 
State Agricultural college won first, 
second, third, fourth, seventh, ninth, 
and tenth places, and nine honorable 
mentions in an international essay 
contest by the Portland Cement asso- 
ciation. The results of the contest 
were announced just after the close 
of college last June. 

They took SlOO of the $250 offered 
in the contest. All the students but 
one were enrolled In a class in agri- 
cultural journalism taught by C. E. 
Rogers, associate professor of indus- 
trial journalism, at the time they 
wrote the essays. Writing the essays 
was assigned by Professor Rogers as 
a class problem. The subject of the 
composition was the uses of concrete 
on the farm. 

The contest was open to all stu- 
dents of agriculture of the United 
States and Canada. Four hundred 
and ninety-eight essays from 47 
states and Canada were entered. The 
length of each essay was limited to 
600 words.

Student registration at Kansas 
State Agricultural college passed its 
previous high record by fully 150 
during the first week of the fall se- 
mester. The enrolment yesterday 
stood at 2,725. No check of depart- 
mental or divisional enrolment has 
yet been attempted by the registrar's 
office, the rush of late registration 
having kept an extra force of work- 
ers engaged in that work alone. The 
figures do not include summer enrol- 
ment which totalled S83. 

Enrolment figures for the three 
years since the demobilization of 
troops at the close of the war In- 
dicates a steady growth of the col- 
lege. During the school year of 
1921-22 a new high record was set. 
The grand total for the year was 
3,560, a gain of 230 over the 3,396 
in the school year 1920-21, the pre- 
vious high mark. 


The attendance for 1921-22 was 
divided into the following groups: 
summer school, 820; housekeepers' 
short course, 19; farmers' short 
course, 59; engineering short course, 
173; special students, 297; vocation- 
al school, 221; freshmen, 831; so- 
phomores, 628; juniors, 422; sen- 
iors, 296; graduate students, 125. 

In the divisions the engineering 
school led with 926 students in 1921- 
1922. The division of general sci- 
ence enrolled 775; the division of 
agriculture, 763; the division of 
home economics, 552; the division of 
veterinary medicine, 68; the sum- 
mer school, <S20; and the vocational 
school, 297. The grand total shows 
2,414 men and 1,146 women en- 

A total of 37,472 enrolled with 
the pxtonsion division. Of these 476 
took courses for college credit. 496 
took courses for vocational credits, 
and 36,500 received three or more 
free lessons or Instruction sheets. 


Thirty-seven of the 48 states of 
the union and the District of Colum- 
bia were represented in the student 
body. Kansas students numbered 
3,149. Missouri sent 151 to K. S. A. 
C. Oklahoma, 39; Nebraska, 25; 
Colorado, 22; Arkansas, 16; Illinois, 
15; Iowa, 14; Texas, 12; California, 
10; Indiana, Michigan, and Pennsyl- 
vania, 7 each; New Mexico, 6; North 
Carolina, Massachusetts, and Ohio, 
5 each; Louisiana, 4; Arizona and 
New York, 3 each; Idaho, Kentuclty, 
Maine, Montana, North Dakota, Wis- 
consin, and Wyoming, 2 each; and 
Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, 
Georgia, Minnesota, New Jersey, 
Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, and Wash- 
ington, one each. 


Twenty-eight students from for- 
eign countries attended the college 
during the 1921-22 school year. Bra- 
zil, China, Mexico, and the Philip- 
pine islands were each represented 
by 4. Three were from Egypt, two

Colleges throughout the country 
are opening with large enrolments. 
Agricultural or Industrial depres- 
Bion does not keep young people from 
college. Often it causes more of 
them to attend, because remunerative 
work outside is scarce and because 
they realize that college training is 
important to success. 

In unfavorable times the respon- 
sibility upon the colleges and upon 
the students in the colleges increases. 
The money that is being spent means 
more to the country. The value ot 
training for livelihoods and for life 
is more apparent. The colleges rec- 
ognize the added responsibility. 
Moreover, they are insisting upon the 
students' recognizing it also. 

good environment the lessoni of 
practical citizenBhlp — majority de- 
cision, consideration for minority , 
rights, office as a public trust, the 
existence of the state tor the citizen 
rather than the citizen for the state 
— lessons which many of us in adult 
life have not yet learned. 

It brings to attention also the (act 
that citizenship is the most impor- 
tant thing that can be taught in the 
schools — much more important than 
any subject aimed wholly at money- 
making or social standing or any 
such thing. The students in our 
schools need realistic lessons in citi- 
zenship and all the economic, socio- 
logical, and political implications 
that it possesses. They need to know 
not merely the laws and principles of 
government, but the way In which 
these practically operate and how 
they can be made to operate more 
Justly and more efficiently. Theory 
is all right, but it needs to be rein- 
forced by practical demonstrations 
and, still more, by practical trial. 
Demonstration can bo furnished 
through examination of the actual 
workings of local, state, and national 
governments. Trial can be obtained 
through practice In school govern- 

Nobody else Is going to take the 
responsibility (or citizenship. The 
responsibility — and it is a privilege, 
too — belongs to the schools. 

The most thorough scientific re- 
search has proved, says the Minnea- 
polis Messenger seriously, that no 
woman ever committed suicide on 
her way to buy a new hat. 

We might offer the furtive obser- 
vation, however, that many husbands, 
after having seen the price tag, un- 
doubtedly wished their wives had 
proven the exception to the rule.

"America Needs Politicana." 
With this slogan, The American 
Boy is doing a splendid thing for 
boys and a splendid thing for Amer- 
ica in offering prizes to high school 
papers for stories and editorials of 
constructive service in the schools, 
Says The American Boy: 
"To the people is entrusted all the 
power of our government — in coun- 
tryside and village, town and city, 
state and nation. 

"A few exercise this power. The 
few who do, the few who are active 
citizens, are scornfully dubbed by the 
others 'politicians.' These others, 
the inactive citizens, sit on the side- 
lines, most of them grumbling about 
unfair laws, hard times, and dismal 
prospects — all brought about, so 
they aver, because the country is 
'run hy politicians." 

"This altitude (leveloi)s early. 
The boy Jibes at Bob Baxter, candi- 
date for the class presidency, as a 
'politician' — and later continues to 
scoff and criticize while Bob bears 
the brunt of the class work. 

"Any citizen can become an active 
citizen, a clean politician. As such, 
he has a voice as powerful as any- 
body else's in the way things are 
run .... 

"The noted educators and students 
ot government with whom we have 
been in conference all give the same 
counsel: Make politicians, clean poli- 
ticians, out of the boys in school. 
Arouse In the boy the desire to do 
hia share of public work; give him 
practice in doing it." 

The contest is based on these ideas. 
It is concerned with stories and edi- 
torials that consider public affairs in 
the student body. It is a nne thing. 
But It brings to attention matters 
much more significant than mere 
contests. It brings to attention the 
Importance of as much self-govern- 
ment as possible in the schools, in 
order that students may learn in a

The Emoluments of Teaching 

John S. Notlen. Dean of Orintiell Collete 

It is notorious that the emoluments of teaching, even 
on Its highest level, are far inferior to those of quite or- 
dinarily successful men in the other professions. In a 
college paying salaries not exceeded by those of any oth- 
er similar institution in Iowa, it has been found impos- 
sible to retain at a professor's salary even a young physi- 
cian of limited experience as college physician. 

Nor has the American teacher, like his European 
colleagues, a place in the community that might com- 
pensate for insufficient financial rewards. In colonial 
days the town pedagogue commonly combined the duties 
of teacher with those of sexton, or with other humble, 
not to say menial pursuits; and the newspaper of that 
day was known to carry, in the same column with the list 
of black slaves (or sale, an advertisement of an indentured 
servant to be sold for four years, and guaranteed to be 
capable of teaching as well as to possess other forms of 
servile skill. We have made progresB since those primi- 
tive days, but we still lag far behind other civilized lands 
in the practical recognition of the dignity of teaching. 
The great continental nations of Europe are usually gov- 
erned by professors, the point of which just now is not 
that they are there(ore necessarily better governed, but 
that the (act in Itself is convincing evidence of public 
confidence in and esteem (or the profession 

We have put our trust and our money in physical 
equipment, splendid buildings, lavishly (urnlshed, great 
public monuments to which every citizen can point with 
pride as conspicuous evidence of the public spirit of his 
town and Its consuming interest in the education of the 
rising generation; and In these places we are likely to 
find teachers who are undertrained, underpaid and inex- 
perienced, for with us teaching Is not a profession, but 
a procession. Which is more important, the shell or the 
kernel, the husk or the corn? What farmer would build 
a palatial stable (or his cattle and then stint their (od- 
der? Are our cattle more precious than our children? 
Can you imagine a school district voting bonds or an 
equivalent extra tax in order to secure the best teachers 
in the country?

But healthy, loped behind. 

"Oh, glory he to me," grunts he. 

"This glory trail Is rough, 
Yet even till the Judgment Morn 
I'll keep this dally 'round the horn, 
For never any hero born 

Could stop to holler: "NufC!" 

Three suns had rode their circle home 

Beyond the desert's rim, 
And turned their star-herds loose to 
The ranges high and dim; 
Tet up and down and 'round and 
Bob pounded, weak and wan, 
For pride still glued him to his 
And glory drove him on. 

"Oh glory be to me," sighs he. 

"He kaint be drug to death. 
But now I know beyond a doubt 
Them heroes I have read about 
Was only fools that stuck it out 

To end of mortal breath." 

•Way high up the MogoUons 

A.prospect man did swear 
That moon dreams melted down his 

And hoisted up his li.air; 
A rlbby cow-hawse thundered by 

A lion trailed along, 
A rider, ga'nt but chin on high, 

Yelled out a crazy song. 

"Oh, glory b<> to me!" cries he, 

"And to my noble noose! 
Oh. stranpTpr. tell my pards below 
I took a rampln' dream In tow. 
And If I never lay him low, 
I'll never turn him loose!" 

Mrs. Thompson in the women's col-

back at these mean men with the re- 
mark that Howard has a man gossip 
who can even tell what people are 
thinking of doing. 

The growers would have less rea- 
son for complaint, states the Wath- 
ena Times, if, instead of kicking so 
much about the number of melons 
plugged in their patches, they would 
take the trouble to educate the 
younger generation so that they can 
tell the ripe ones. Os Madinger, an 
extensive grower, says a ripe melon 
has a dead sound. He tunes his ear 
to the right sound for a ripe melon 
by thumping the sole of his shoes. 
Plain, simple directions like that, 
posted in a patch at night and il- 
luminated by a lantern, would do 
away with much of the loss from 
plugged melons.

The rapid increase of students in 
all departments has made necessary 
the division of many classes. Last 
Saturday, the president announced 
in chapel that by Tuesday morning 
the preparatory classes In arithmetic

first divisions of these will be taught

W. M. Ireland, who was a second- 
year student last winter and had been

had the best of medical attendance. 

The vagaries of the censorship are 
many and battling. Walt Whitman 
is suppressed in Hungary as an an- 
archist and communist writer. There 
being so few translations of Hunga- 
rian works in America, the United 
States takes its revenge by picking 
on "Mademoiselle de Maupin," a 
book slightly older than Whitman's 
work. ■ France retorts through Le 
Gaulois, which discontinues the ser- 
ial publication of a French transla- 
tion of Sherwood Anderson's "Wines- 
burg, Ohio," and then caroms by 
permitting the issue ot Joyce's "Ulys- 
ses," which America banned and 
England dared not print. — Kansas

The ox warble fly is costing Kan-

the animal's back and treat the back 
with a salve made of one part iodo-

An Alma Mater Record Proposed 

Would you enjoy a good phono- 
graph record of the College song, 
"Alma Mater"? Last winter at the 
eastern alumni banquet Earl Wheel- 
er, '05, 1028 Myrtle avenue. Plain- 
field, N. J., suggested one be made. 

"They passed the buck to me," 
Earl wrote recently, "suggesting I 
Investigate and report next year. 

"The thought came to me after 
hearing Mrs. Henrietta (Hofer) Ross, 
'03, sing a few pieces as she used to 
in my college days. Nothing else at 
the meeting carried me so quickly 
back to those days. For you know to 
us of the early naughts, no musical 
program was complete if Retta Hofer 
didn't sing. 

"So I suggest to the alumni that 
we have an Alma Mater record made, 
and that it be by Retta Hofer. I 
know of none better fitted, with 
sweeter voice, to make it. Incident- 
ally, Mrs. Ross has passed the exam- 
ination for making records; that Is, 
her voice will register properly. 
Also she lives convenient to the Vic 
tor and Columbia plants. 

"If the association thinks well of 
the suggestion I shall investigate the 
requirements and costs. If anyone 
has a better suggestion, speak up." 

Write direct to Earl at the fore- 
going address if interested. He 
can't put it across unaided. 

And the harmony in that yell is 
typical of conditions at the college. 
They rise up with one voice, students 
and faculty, and if the voices of the 
alumni that have been raised are a. 
criterion for the still silent ones, 
the whole college family, present and 
absent, is in close harmony. 

What is to be accomplished this 
year by the college is set down in the 
curricula and the working projects 
of the experiment station and ex- 
tension division. The work of the 
alumni association is as definitely 
planned. But the college is getting 
the jump. Its program is well un- 
der way. The chief reasons for this 
are zest and organization.

Kansas Staters in Wyoming 

James R. Coxen, '07, who has been 
In Wyoming with the state univers- 
ity and at Cheyenne as state di- 
rector for vocational educationn for 
five years, says he sees some K. S. A. 
C. people occasionally. He adds, 

"Fred Houser, '07, is chief clerk 
in the office of the state game war- 
den here in Cheyenne. A. F. Vass, 
'09, is professor of agronomy and 
Cecil Elder, '16, is associate pro- 
fessor of veterinary science at the 
University of Wyoming. M. W. Watt, 
'20, and Frank Fleming, '14, have 
been teaching vocational agriculture 
and proving up on their' homesteads. 

"While in California last spring I 
saw A. D. Holloway, '07, who has a 
chicken and fruit ranch at Puente. 
I saw also Dr. Ray Thompson, '08, 
and Grace (Hull) Thompson, '08. 
Ray is practicing in Whlttier." 

But the alumni association is on 
the way. It has whipped up consider- 
ably in the last two years, and is 
geining. A closer organization, 
though not a tighter one, is sought 
for this year; and the goal, "every 
graduate an active alumnus," will 
be before the association constantly. 

There Is no need in an enlight- 
ened community such as the one in 
which this newspaper circulates, to 
argue the need for organization. 
James Harbord, our distinguished 
fellow alumnus, can tell you how far 
Uncle Samuel would have got with- 
out it. Organization and zest meant 

So the association Is stepping a- 
long, but slowly as compared with 
the pace It should assume In the 
column of other alumni associations. 
When every graduate is an active 
alumnus the present position a- 
mong the stragglers will be aband- 


Sounds pessimistic? Not a bit of 
it. Just another way of congratu- 
lating the alumni association on the 
remarkable advance it has made in 
recent years with such a small per- 
centage of its graduates enrolled as 

Now just suppose every graduate 
active. The accomplishments of re- 
cent years could be multiplied by — 
but of such stuff dreams are made. 
Wake up! Let's get the actives.

department lecture period Monday 
afternoon. Miss Coyle described the 
function of the magazine and her own 
work as field editor. 

A contest recently conducted by 
the Farmer's Wife resulted in 7,000 
letters invading the office of the 
magazine. Persons were asked to 
write .500 word letters on "Would you 
want your daughter to marry a farm-

cent were favorable and 6 per cent 

The 200 letters received by the

from the whole country, 96 per cent 
being favorable and 6 per cent being 
negative. Three of the Kansas let-

Workmen on the new Memorial 
stadium finished pouring concrete 
into the forms of the first construc- 
tion unit of the structure this week, 
while the setting up of forms on a 
second unit was under way. 

There will be eight units in the 
first section of the stadium, the 
part for which the contract is let. 
This section, seating 6,700, is being 
built from funds given by students, 
faculty, and Manhattan townspeople. 
Two additional sections will complete 
the stadium. A drive to raise funds 
for completion of the stadium will be 
carried to the alumni of the college 
some time this fall. The stadium 
complete will cost $350,000. The 
part under construction will cost 
about $125,000. 


At least 2,600 seats in the stad- 
ium will be completed for the Aggie 
Homecoming game with K. U. here 
October 28, Walter Stingley, con- 
tractor, predicted this week. Seating 
accommodations for 1,600 are prom- 
ised tentatively for the opening game 
of the season with Washburn. 

Mike Ahearn, athletic director, is 
sure that enough temporary seats can 
be provided to take care of the Home- 
coming crowd. With bleachers, the 
old grandstand, and the part of the 
stadium which has been completed 
by that date accommodations for a 
crowd of 7,000 are assured. The

Two thirds of all the material 
necessary for the entire eight units

Sprlngdale Clothlngr Demonatration 

Team, Leavenworth County, t>e- 

elared Champion 

The Springdale Clothing club dem- 
onstration team, of Leavenworth 
county, which won the grand cham- 
pionship In the boys' and girls' clubs 
demonstration contest at the inter- 
state fair at Sioux City, Iowa, last 
week, was organized less than a year 
ago in a community where there had 
been no club work before. The 
Springdale team competed against 
teams which had been trained for 
this particular contest for one and 
even two years. 

The three girls on the team, Mary 
Hassett, Mary Ulrich, and Katherlne 
Ulrich, although not attending high 
school, are receiving much instruc- 
tion that they would receive in home 
economics courses, through the club 
work. The Springdale Clothing club 
team was chosen at the Leavenworth 
county demonstration contest to re- 
present the county at the Kansas 
Free fair at Topeka. There the team 
won first honors in the girls' con- 
test and second honors for the fair. 

At Sioux City eleven teams 
entered in the girls' contest and 
nine in the boys' contest. The 
Iowa team won the boys' contest and 
competed with the Springdale girls 
for the grand championship. 

The Springdale team's demonstra- 
tion was on appropriate dress. Two 
girls were dressed in the same kind 
of dresses, but one wore an attrac- 
tive collar and cuffs, and a simple 
hat, while the other wore a collar 
and cuffs ill suited to the rest of the 
dress, a large quantity of jewelry and 
a conspicuous hat. 

The girls scored high on subject 
matter, team work and skill. The 
team was coached by Eleanor Howe, 
Leavenworth county club agent.

One Wins Eliminated To Come Within 

$100,000 Appropriation— Ground 

Broken Thia Week — To Stand 

North of Bnrracka 

After all bids for the erection of 
the veterinary clinic and hospital 
building authorized by the last Kan- 
sas legislature for the Kansas State 
Agricultural college had been found 
to be too high, the south wing of the 
building as planned was eliminated 
and the contract was let to 
the Murch Brothers Construction 
company of St. Louis for $90,370. 
The Murch Brothers company has 
the contract for the new wing of 
Waters hall, and as the new veterin- 
ary building is to be located just 100 
feet west, the firm can work ad- 
vantageously on the new contract. It 
will stand just north of the barracks, 
some 200 feet northwest of the 
veterinary building. 

The plumbing and heating and 
electric contracts will bring the cost 
of the building without the south 
wing to $96,945. 


The plumbing and heating con- 
tract went to the Topeka Engineer- 
ing company at a price of $5,588. 
The electric wiring contract was 
awarded to the Chase Electric com- 
pany of Junction City, which bid 

The 1921 legislature appropriated 
$100,000 for the erection of the vet- 
erinary building. That amount will 
be almost entirely used up when 
the heating, lighting, and other ac- 
counts are settled. The building and 
repair department of the college 
does this work, which it is estimated 
will cost in the neighborhood of 
$2,500, bringing the total expendi- 
ture upon the new building to $99',- 


Bids for the general contract on 
the building as originally planned 
were all in excess of the $100,000 
appropriated. Murch brothers' bid 
was the lowest, being $106,000. Oth- 
er bids were Cork & Ferrier, Man- 
hattan, $115,000; George E. Dalton, 
Junction City, $118,640; Clarence 
Johnson, Manhattan, $126,718; Dun- 
can-Lynch Construction company, 
Kansas City, $137,209. 

The Murch brothers' representa- 
tive who attended the letting gave 
the state board of administration the 
option of adding the south wing, 
temporarily eliminated, to the build- 
ing at a cost of $17,000, provided 
the option is exercised before March 
15, 1923. The 1923 legislature, 
which meets in January, will prob- 
ably be asked to appropriate funds to 
complete the building as planned. 
The wing which may be left off was 
planned to house the small animals 
section of the hospital and clinic 

Work on the new building started 
Monday. It will he completed June 
15, 1923, and will be equipped and 
ready for use at the opening of the 
fall term next year. 

Dean R. R. Dykstra and Dr. W. E.

ary medicine, and G. R. Pauling, su-

Professor Keith has been in charge 
of the mechanical side of the depart- 
ment of Industrial journalism and 
printing since 1916. Previous to 
his entering K. S. A. C. as a student 
in 1908 he had worked from "devil" 
to foreman in the office of the Coun-

from the course In printing in 1912 
he took a job as press feeder in the

There are approximately 200,000 
one-teacher schoolhouses in the 
United States. Add to this number 
the thousands of rural school build- 
ings with more than one teacher 
each, and you have some conception 
of the Importance of the rural school. 
The chances are you thought It less 
significant than you will think it, 
once you have reflected on these 

The problem of the rural school is 
chiefly this. The rural school has 
not advanced as other institutions 
have advanced. Backward-looking 
folk point to the accomplishment of 
the rural school of half a century 
ago, to the men and women of ability 
and integrity who went out from it 
to take important places in the life of 
the world. 

All this may be frankly admitted 
without altering the situation in the 
least. The difference between the 
rural school in those days and any 
other sort of school was not so 
marked as it is now. The country 
school has advanced since those days, 
but the city school has advanced fas- 
ter. (This is to throw no particular 
bouquets to the city schools; anybody 
In educational work knows that no 
school anywhere, from the kindergar- 
ten to the graduate college, is the 
educational institution that it should 

This is wrong. The difference be- 
tween rural and city education, in 
point of quality, should be reduced 
and in time absolutely eliminated. 
There is no excuse for giving u coun- 
try boy or girl less opportunity than 
any other boy or girl. It is true 
that he or she has certain opportuni- 
ties for education outside of s;'hool 
that the city child lacks, but this ar- 
gument is beside the mark. The 
city child has also certain special op- 
portunities. The country child is en- 
titled to as good education as the 
nation affords. From a purely sel- 
flsh standpoint, tlie nation cannot af- 
ford to let standards of intelligence 
fall in the ranks of those engaged in 
its most important industry, farming. 

There should be differences be- 
tween the kind of work done in city 
and in rural schools, because stu- 
dents In the two types of school have 
different environments, different in- 
terests, and different outlooks upon 
1 li. But there is no for dif- 
ference in quality. 



A few years ago the rage was all 
for contests to determine which girl 
In America or France or Africa or 
the British Isles had the most beau- 
tiful face. Then came the awarding 
r? medals to the girl with tbe most 

beautiful arms. Then came feet and 
ankles, and next the committees were 
adjudging beautiful legs. Now 
France, England, the United States 
and others are putting forth claims 
of ownership of girls with beautiful 
backs. And the girls are, one might 
say, stripped for action, awaiting an- 
other beauty call for Lord knows 
what, — Concordia Blade.

Men brag about coming from a 
good family, says the Norton Cham- 
pion, just as if they had had some- 
thing to do with it. 

Eventually, sighs the Altoona Tri- 
bune in an Inflnyely tired Voice, 
your wife will call you "papa," and 
you will call her "mamma." 

The Chapman Advertiser states 
that 23 robberies have been commit- 
ted in that city since the first of the 
year. With that number, says the 
Enterprise Journal hopefully, the 
work ought to be completed. 


A gloomy young poet sent a poem 
to a paper, reports the Bonner 
Springs Chieftain. It was called 
"Why Am I Alive?" The editor 
returned it with a slip on which 
was typed, "Because you sent this

"Brother Philander," said I to our 
boss deacon the other day, "I always 
have a headache on Sunday and can't 
do a thing. What would you do 
about it?" "If It were we," replied 
Philander, "I would try to have the 
headache on Monday. Having to 
suffer with a headache on the boss's 
time Is bad enough, but it is worse 
to endure the torture at your own 
expense." As a healer Philander is 
the best financier In our church. —

Our neighboring county of Brcwn 
Is conceded to be one of tht best

Three of her most prominent citi- 
zens were defeated at the late pii-

Smith for attorney general, and 
Stuart for district judge. 

If Brown were modest like Jack-

she would escape disappointment. 
Holton has not asked for a state of- 
fice for nearly a half century, and 
did not even get her man nominated 
when she did ask. True, a Holton 
man was drafted to take the nomina-

The college has received several 
applications for assistance in farm- 
ers' institutes. It is probable that 
about 20 institutes will be favored 
this winter by college delegations,

assistance should call early.

The Function of a Newspaper 

Henry •/. Allen in the Wichita Beacon 

There is a saying among newspaper men that the 
whole function of a newspaper is to print the news and 
to give the people what they want. 

The Beacon's conception of a newspaper's duty is that 
it is 100 per cent its duty to print the news, but there are 
additional percentages which it must assume in order to 
merit that moral support of the community which we con- 
sider indispensable. 

It would not be worth while to publish a newspaper 
purely as a business proposition, even though it might 
prosper. The additional percentages are concerned with 
those moral obligations which come along with the 
privilege of talking to the public every day. 

These percentages are concerned with the laying of 
substantial foundations deep under the consciousness of 
the public. 

The right-minded newspaper often does things that 
are for the time unnoticed. They may even bring on cen- 
sure, with no praise. They may not cater to the passions 
or prejudices of the people. But they do form a part of 
the moral fiber of the community. Hidden deep under 
the surface they may never come to light except in times 
of great stress or emergency, when there is a rigid test. 

The newspaper that can not pass such tests cannot 
be called anything but a money-making device, without 
ideals, without responsibility to the public. 

It is sometimes a challenging responsibility to pub- 
lish a newspaper. It is a thing that hammers continually 
— every day — softly upon each door, like the falling 
leaves or snow. But the accumulated weight is that of 
an avalanche. 

Professor Willard read a well pre- 
pared paper on "Food Values of 
Fruits," and Professor Walters gave 
an interesting talk on "The Past and 
Future of the City Park.' • 

The Manhattan trade carnival on 
Saturday, November 13, In connec- 
tion with C. P. Dewey's annual corn 
festival, has already attained large 
proportions. The executive commit- 
tee has secured over $400 in cash to 
be offered as premiums and new fea- 
tures are being added daily. 

The botanical department has sent 
a neatly drawn, large map of Man- 
hattan and vicinity to the engraver. 
The map will be used by the students 
to mark the place where they found 
rare plant specimens in their col- 
lecting excursions. Miss Bertha Kim- 
ball did the pen work of the original. 

And still they come! The num- 
ber of undergraduates assigned to 
classes at the close of last week was 
5 87. This week the attendance has 
Krown by over a dozen names, so that 
over 600 undergraduates are actual- 
ly present now. This, with the post- 
graduates, raises the total number to 
nearly 650.

America Is far from being the only 
country In the world whence come 
"emancipated" women, but it is 
rather curious to note that an inter- 
esting controversy Involving the new 
rights of the gentler sex should cen- 
ter around a brilliant Bulgarian wo- 
man, Mile. Stantinotr, who has been 
appointed to a responsible position 
In the legation at Washington. 

Mile. Stantinoff's brother emerges 
from the semi-obscurity of a legal 
career in Paris to cable his more dis- 
tinguished sister that "woman's 
place is in the home; her work is to 
rear children, not diplomatic argu- 
ments," etc. — everybody has heard 
that sort of stuff many times. 

There is incidentally a bit of deli- 
cious irony in the fact that Brother 
Stantlnoff owes his brief conspicu- 
osity to the fact that he is brother 
of the sister whom he lectures so 
severely. But for her, it is extremely 
doubtful if he would ever have been 
heard of outside the classic precincts 
of the Sorbonne — and perhaps not in 
all corners of that historic institu- 

In the meantime. Mile. Stantlnoff 
gives no indications of resigning her 
position, marrying and devoting her- 
self to the career which her brother 
has mapped out for her as an inci- 
dental representative of her sex. The 
probabilitiies are that Brother will 
grind away at his law books in the 
quiet of the classroom, while Sister 
will blazon her way through the ca- 
reer which she has chosen. If Sis- 
ter ever marries and has need of a 
lawyer's services, she may throw a 
bit of business the family way. But 
she is only a potential client at this 
writing. — Kansas City Journal.

The Trials of Big Business 

R. S. Kellogg, '96, 342 Madison 
avenue. New York, contributes this 
log, written August 21: 

"The last of May Mrs. Kellogg, the 
small boy and I loaded our camp 
duffel Into the car and headed for the 
Lake states. We had a delightful 
visit with Professor Olln and wife 
at Akron, Ohio, where he has been 
for the last twenty-three years and 
for some time vice president of the 
Municipal urilverailty. Despite his 
fifty-two years of teaching Professor 
Olln Is as vigorous as ever and says 
he will keep at it until he is 76 
when he will retire to a little fruit 
farm near Akron, which he has been 
developing for several years. Judg- 
ing by the examples of Professor 
Olln, Walters and others, spending 
one's early days in Kansas is con- 
ducive to a long life of usefulness. 

"We spent a few days at Chicago 
with the other half of Hall, Kellogg 
& Co. (W. L. Hall and wife) and 
then went up to Madison where we 
saw Mrs. Kedzle, Dan and Mary Otis 
and others. Then we Journeyed to 
our own home town of Wausau and 
put in three weeks there In the Up- 
per Peninsula of Michigan. 

"We did a lot of other traveling 
and piled up nearly five thousand 
miles before we got back here. 
Saturday we expect to start on a two 
weeks expedition through the Berk- 
shires, the White mountains and 
Maine, with a boat trip over into a 
lumbering operation in New Bruns- 

A Duty for Graduates 

"I feel that the alumni association 
is doing a mighty good work," writes 
W. H. Olln, '89, "and I am only too 
glad to have the privilege of giving a 
word of encouragement and put in a 
few dollars to help the good work 

"I feel that every graduate of K. 
S. A. C. should do his or her utmost 
to be active in this work and en- 
courage our alumni officers with their 
dollars, their good wishes and their 
earnest support."

Hopeful Future for Future Hopefuls

from their Fairmount (Kan.) home.

he will be able to say 'We Beat 
K. U.' " 

This will inform Mr. and Mrs. 
Stratton of the next ^ step in the 
course of study for Clyde and Mary. 
It is, "Beat N. U." The Aggie foot- 
ball disciples are after the biggest 
fellow in the valley this year and 
they may get him. 

A "good luck" chain letter got in- 
to this office the other day from Vic- 
tor Obefias, '09, in Camarines Sur, 
Philippine Islands. Contrary to ex- 
plicit instructions, the chain now is 
broken. This one is offered to re- 
place it: 

Copy this and send it to five of 
your friends among Kansas State 
graduates. 1 am an active alum- 
nus because I believe the things I 
wish done for K. S. A. C. can not be 
accomplished unless all of us worlc 
together. I am strong for the alum- 
ni association and have paid my 
dues as an active member to Com- 
mencement 1923. Have you? 

That kind of a letter would bring 
good luck, good cheer, and handsome 

Colorado Alumni Pry Steak 

The Boulder (Col.) chapter of K. S. 
A. C. alumni and friends enjoyed a 
beefsteak fry at the Split Rock 
spring up Bluebell canon August 15. 
After supper college songs were sung 
and the old days talked over. These 
persons, Helen Haines, '13, writes, 
were present : 

Harvey A. Burt,' '05, and Mary 
(Strife) Burt, '05, Boulder; Fred H. 
Dodge, '21, and Myrtle (Hutto) 
Dodge, Manhattan; Edythe (Wilson) 
Thoesen, Boulder; Flossie (Davis)

Fleming and Evelyn Gaston, Wake- 
field; Norma West and Vera May

wood; Anna Poland (f. s. '13-'15),

tan; Grace Craven, '14, Evelyn Pot- 
ter, '15, and Helen Haines, ' 13,

A group of girls, Aggie graduates 
and former students, had a line party 
at a Boulder theater the next Mon- 
day evening. Refreshments were 
served after the show. The party, 
Flossie (Davis) Myers, Clytlce Ross, 
Marcia Tillman, and Anna Poland, 
students in the University of Colo- 
rado summer school, and Grace Cra- 
ven, Evelyn Potter, and Helen Haines 
of Boulder. 

The same group, learning that 
Evelyn Potter was soon to be mar- 
ried, surprised her with a shower 
August 28. 

"Most of the girls who were here," 
writes Miss Haines, "were teachers. 
One or two admitted they also were 
'waiting.' Our festivities ended with 
the shower. We are going to start 
earlier next summer." 

Speaking of rewards, the students 
several years back honored Mike 
Ahearn by affixing his name to the 
college athletic field. It seems now 
that the name never was recognized 
officially although it is used in stu- 
dent and alumni publications. It is 
so referred to in alumni correspond- 

Haven't heard that any one was 
opposed to the name, but Mike now 
is director of athletics. Seems there 
is no precedent for flowers to the liv- 
ing. After Mike is gone the college 
may have officially an Ahearn field. 
But why not now? 

Michigan Alumni Organize 

At a recent meeting in Detroit, the 
Michigan Alumni association was or- 
ganized with Dr. R. H. Wilson, '09, 
of the Rochester, Mich., Biological 
farm, as president, Dr. Frank K. 
Hansen, '19, of Lansing, vice-presi- 
dent, and Lenora B. Nicolay ('10- 
'12), secretary. A permanent or- 
ganization was effected the last 
week in July at a meeting in Lan- 



Mrs. Harriet V. Perry, instructor 
in music in the agricultural college 
from 1869 to 1877, died at Sanford, 
Fla.. July 25. She was 78 years old. 
She is survived by a daughter, a son, 
and a brother. 

Dean Working Back Home 

D. W. Working, '88, who last 
June resigned the deanship of the 
college of agriculture, University of 
Arizona, is now at his old home near 
Denver. His address is Route 2, 
Capitol Hill station, Denver. He 
writes that he sees George C. Wheel- 
er, W. H. Olin, and other Kansas Ag- 
gies occasionally. 

A higher standard of scholarship 
is the end sought by adoption of the 
point system, mentioned in this 
newspaper last week. No longer may 
a person be graduated who has suc- 
ceeded in making only passing 
grades. Alumni who have been in- 
sisting on a stiffening of the curri- 
cula and elevation of scholastic 
standards at K. S. A. C. found pleas- 
ure in the announcement. 

Yet another measure was an- 
nounced by the president at the be- 
ginning of the fall semester, to make 
life difficult for the loafer student. 
Rather, the announcement dealt with 
the enforcement of an old measure. 
It is that when a student acquires 10 
unexcused absences he is suspended. 
The suspension is of his own making; 
the possibility of resuming his col- 
lege work rests with the president. 

Clif Htrntton L'p a Rung 

Clif Stratton, '11, the first execu- 
tive secretary of the K. S. A. C. 
alumni association, has been pro- 
moted to managing editor of the 
Topeka Capital. He resigned as 
alumni secretary in June to return 
to the Capital. In announcing his 
iiPIiointment the paper stated editor- 
ially, "Mr. Stratton is a seasoned 
newspaper man, widely and favorably 
known in the state." 

He has served as political reporter 
for the Capital for a number of 
years, his connection with the paper 
having been broken by service in the 

Olof Valley Foils Bandit 

Olof Valley will be remembered 
by students of a decade ago as head 
of the music department at the col- 
lege. He weighed about 270 pounds 
and had what one enthusiastic ad- 
mirer described as a "deep, rich, 
velvet voice." 

Olof was one of the few mem- 
bers of the faculty family who were 
in the air service during the war. A. 
G. Klttell, '09, reports that Valley 
still is with the air service, has re- 
duced his weight considerably, and 
recently came off victor in an en- 
counter with an Omaha bandit. 

Valley and Mrs. Valley were vis- 
iting in Omaha at the time. They 
alighted from the street car and 
started for their apartments when 
the bandit appeared. 

"Stick 'em up," the bandit com- 
manded Olof, pointing the automatic 
at him. 

Olof held them up. "What do 
you want?" he asked. 

"Money," the Omaha citizen an- 

"This was too much," Kit says. 
"Olof lunged forward, knocked the 
gun from the bandit's hand, and 
made a grab for him. The bandit 
ran down the street, and Olof, not 
having an airplane handy, was not 
fast enough to catch him, and the

Only One Extrnordlnnry Piece «( 

Fiction Pnbliahed In Last Year, 

LouU Meeker Declare* 

"Book reviewing — is just one poor 
book after another! During the 
spring freshets and the fall floods 
from the publishing houses I suppose 
there isn't a day passes but that 
somewhere somebody is quoting that 
age old complaint, 'Of the making of 
books there is no end'. I have quoted 
it myself, no doubt more than once. 
But I should like to revise it thus, 
'Of the making of poor books there 
is no end'." 

This, in part, is the inside story 
of the book page editor as tola to 
students of journalism at the weekly 
lecture period Monday by Louis 
Meeker, editor of the Kansas City 
Star book page. 

Only one piece of fiction publlshe<l 
in the last year stands forth as an 
extraordinary piece of work In Mr. 
Meeker's opinion. That book is 
"Maria Chaiulelaine" by Louis Hem- 
on, for some unaccountable reason a 
best seller, he said. 

"More people, in all likelihood, read 
book reviews than formerly," he con- 
tinued. "Much greater space than 
was possible not so long ago is now 
given to books of distinctly literary 
character. The signed review too 
has become much more general. This 
doub)tless has made for more re- 
sponsibility. The tendency now is 
to obtain the judgment of specialists 
living everywhere." 

Mr. Meeker gave a number of 
practical suggestions to journalism 
students who are particularly inter- 
ested in becomming book reviewers. 


Lack of Material Given by Aggie Direc- 
tor aa Reaaon 

Lack of Aggie tennis material 
caused Mike Ahearn, Kansas Aggie 
athletic director, to cancel an en- 
gagement to meet the tennis team of 
the University of Chicago here Tues- 
day. Chicago university sent out Its 
tennis team for a trip through the 
Missouri Valley conference with the 
idea of establishing more cordial re- 
lations between the Big Ten school 
and the Valley schools. 



Getting Ready for Waahbum Here Oc- 
tober 7 — Changea In Shift Problem 
— Right K Men Back — Freah- 
men Number TO 

Forty-nine Kansas Aggie regulars 
had their first scrimmage of the sea- 
son with the freshman team on 
Ahearn field Saturday. The scrim- 
mage took the form of an Informal 
game with the coaches following up 
varsity men and correcting errors. All 
varsity men were given a chance, 

One problem which faces the Ag- 
gies is changing the offensive tactics 
to conform to the new ruling on the 
shift. Just how the ofl^cials will In- 
terpret the rule concering a full 
stop is a matter of some speculation 
but Coach Charles Bachman is not 
taking any chances. The Aggie backs 
are being trained very carefully to 
come to a clear, distinct stop be- 
tween the shift and the play. 

"I cannot see that It will material- 
ly change the game, except to slow 
it down somewhat," Coach Bachman 
said. "I do not anticipate any dif- 
ficulties regarding violations of it, 
for the rule Is very plainly written." 


The Aggie offensive, under the 
adapted Notre Dame system inaugur- 
ated here by Coach Bachman two 
years ago, is based largely upon shift 

The Aggie team probably will suf- 
fer somewhat in weight as compared 
with the other teams in the valley 
which it will oppose. An average of 
the 49 men 'eligible for the varsity 
team is 174 pounds. The average 
weight of the forward wall is 179 
pounds, although there are six men 
eligible for conference games who 
average more than 190 pounds. The 
back field men average 157 pounds, 
although the regulars probably will 
average even less than that. The 
team will be no heavier than last 
year's, which underweighed Okla- 
homa between 10 and 15 pounds per 

The coaches are beginning already 
to emphasize the great importance 
of the Nebraska game in the Aggie 
schedule. It is the first time in a 
number of years that the Aggies will 
have met the Cornhuskers in foot- 
ball, but the Nebraska athletic auth- 
orities recognized Bachman's men as 
worthy opponents by giving them the 
Homecoming game. 


All of the eligible letter men whom 
the coaches counted upon returning 
this year, excepting "Susie" Sears, 
full back, and Axline, quarter back, 
have reported for practice. Sears Is 
expected in the first of the week. Ax- 
line, who was athletic director of 
one of the Wichita junior high 
schools last year, signed up for the 
1922-23 school year at the close of 
the last school year. After at- 
tending summer school at K. S. A. C. 
he decided that he would like to re- 
turn to college and finish his work 
this year. He has been trying to ob- 
tain a substitute for his position at 
Wichita but so tar has not been able 
to do so. 


Only eight of last year's letter 
men have returned. They are Hahn, 
Schlinder, and Nichols, in the line, 
Sebring, end, and Swartz, Stark, and 
Burton in the back field. This is 
not as good a nucelus with which to 
work as that which reported for 
practice at the beginning of the 1921 
football season, when eleven letter 
men were eligible. 

The left side of the Aggie line Is 
considerably weaker than the right 
side. Coach Bachman must train a 
center from his freshman material of 
last year. The back field probably is 
better off than the line. Burton and 
Swartz, the halfback K men, have 
had a year each of the Bachman style 
of play. Swartz, the quarterback K 
man, was the unanimous choice of 
the coaches in the valley for all con- 
ference quarterback on the second 

team last season. Butcher and Clem- 
ents, fullbacks who were substitutes 
on last season's team, will give "Su- 
sie" Sears considerable competition 
for. his position, while Brown, of the 
1921 freshman team, bids fair to 
keep Swartz on his toes to retain his 
prerogative as Aggie pilot. Yandall 
and Shaw are showing up especially 
well at half back, while Rheburg 
and Rucker are promising material 
for the back field. 


The Aggies open their season here 
October 7 with Washburn. The 
coaches expect a stiff game. A more 
formal practice contest will be held 
next week. Coach Bachman an- 
nounced. Ted Curtiss' freshmen 
will be in a better position to oppose 
the Aggies by that time. Seventy 
freshmen have drawn uniforms for 
the freshman team. 



Jayhawkera and Comhnakera on Ag- 
gie Schedule 

The Aggies will be hard put to de- 
fend their college In two cross coun- 
try meets scheduled this fall. Only 
one letter man. Captain M. R. Henre, 
Kansas City, Kan., returned this fall. 
About 15 men turned out for the 
first call for tryouts on the cross 
country team and Coach Henre ex- 
pects 35 on his squad before the close 
of the season. 

The cross country team will meet 
K. U. here at the Homecoming game 
October 28. It will also accompany 
the football team to Lincoln Novem- 
ber 18 to meet the Cornhuskers on 
the date of the Aggie-Nebraska foot- 
ball game there. 


Big Ten Schoola on Llat— Good Team 
In Proapect 

A tentative schedule Including en- 
gagements with the Universities of 
nilnois, Chicago, Minnesota, Nebras- 
ka, and Northwestern and the Iowa 
State college, has been arranged by 
E. A. Knoth, Kansas Aggie swimming 
coach. Coach Knoth has issued a call 
for candidates for the team this 

A splendid working nucleus of last 
year's team has returned this fall. 
They are Burton Colburn, Manhat- 
tan; Joe Mackey, Kansas City, Mo.; 
Micky Magill, Topeka; and Joe 
Thackery, Manhattan. Colburn and 
Machey, each of whom scored 14 
points in the Aggie-Nebraska meet 
last winter, have been keeping in 
form during the last summer while 
engaged in life guard work. 


Receive High Pralae from llealdent 

An unsolicited recommendation of 
four undergraduate engineering stu- 
dents of the Kansas State Agricultur- 
al college was received by L. E. Con- 
rad, professor of civil engineering, 
from William D. Stuart, of Pittsburg, 
Kansas, one of the outstanding resi- 
dent engineers of the state. 

"Since the first of June it has been 
my pleasure to have associated with 
me on this work M. W. Todd, L. W. 
Newcomer, G. H. Holllster, and G. A. 
Murray," Mr. Stuart wrote. "The 
work of these young men was all 
that could be desired. They seemed 
to take a great deal of interest in 
their duties and were loyal to all of 
their superiors. It was indeed a 
pleasure to have these young men 
with us during this construction 

"If next year the writer is in a 
position to offer them work at a sal- 
ary that they should command it 
will be a pleasure to employ them. 
I wish to assure you that you can 
refer anyone to me as to the ability 
and loyalty of these young gentle- 
men. You and the college you rep- 
resent are to be commended on turn- 
ing out such men as these four." 



Flrat Floor Will Seat 2B0 and Accom- 
modate 1,000 to 1,500 at Noon Hour 
— Tea Room and Banquet Hall la 
Second Story 

The new $125,000 K. S. A. C. caf- 
eteria building that is nearing com- 
pletion, will be the finest building of 
its kind in the state. It is a two 
story structure of native stone. The 
building stands just inside the cam- 
pus to the right of the south gate. 

The cafeteria will occupy the base- 
ment and first floor of the building. 
The dining room proper is a light 
room with full length windows of 
French effect. It occupies the entire 
north side of the first floor. The 
walls and ceiling of the room are 
being finished in old ivory, and the 
floor will be finished in tan combi- 
nation with brown maginstone comp- 
osition border. 


The cafeteria dining room will 
seat 250 persons at one time, or ap- 
proximately twice the number that 
could be accommodated in the old 
building. At the noon hour it will 
be possible to feed from 1,000 to 1,500 
persons, at the rate they were served 
in the old cafeteria. The dishes 
used In the dining room will be 
carried to the dish washing machine 
in the basement by two subveyors, 
which are the best carriers on the 
market. The dishes will be placed 
on the subveyors in much the same 
way that they were returned in the 
old cafeteria. Clean dishes will be 
carried to a point behind the service 
counter by a third subveyor. 

The service room or service count- 
er will give double service to the 
lines entering at either end of the 
building and meeting at the center. 
The service to the lines will be 
doubled in efficiency compared with 
that of the old building. The cafe- 
teria kitchen is a light, sunny room 
in the sojith ell toward Anderson 


The general store rooms are in the 
basement. The potato store room 
was specially constructed under the 
advice of Prof. Albert Dickens of the 
horticulture department and Prof. L. 
E. Melchers of the botany depart- 
ment. The basement also has a room 
for baking that will in the future 
take care of the baking for the 
cafeteria and any dormitories that 
may be built. The bakery will not 
be equipped immediately. 

Mechanical refrigeration will be 
used throughout the building. The 
contract for the plant is under ad- 
visement. It will require about a 
seven horse power machine to care 
for the refrigeration. The building 
is equipped with a complete ven- 
tilating system and is wired through- 
out for all kinds of electrical equip- 


On the second floor, is a large 
central dining room, with three 
smaller dining rooms adjoining that 
can easily be made a part of the 
main dining room. These rooms will 
be used for tea room and banquet 
service that will be served from its 
own kitchen on the same floor, which 
is entirely apart from the cafeteria. 

Two class rooms on this floor will 
be used for institutional teaching, 
while the cafeteria and tea room will 
be used for a general laboratory. A 
separate laboratory is to be equipped 
for the use for the household eco- 
nomics experimental work. 

One housewife gave her old grass 
rugs a coat of shellac and now she 
leaves them on the porch even when 
it rains. 

One worn-out sheepskin coat fur- 
nished the material for a pair of 
wool mittens, one to apply furniture 
polish and the other to rub it glossy. 

A big woodpile will be worth mon- 
ey this winter.

Building New Aggie Veterinary Hospital 

Ground was broken last week for the new veterinary hospital of 
the Kansas State Agricultural college, an architect's conception of 
which appears herewith. The new building will stand directly west 
of the old armory, the first building erected on the present campus of 
the college. Thus the oldest and the newest will face one another. 
The hospital building will be constructed at a cost of $100,000.

Bulletin laaued by K. 8. A. C. Enstn- 
eerluK Experiment Station Gives 
Summary of Reaulta and Ex- 
plains Methods 

Within the last two years the 
road materials laboratory in engin- 
eering hall, K. S. A. C, has tested 
more than 10,000 samples of mat- 
erial used in constructing 287 miles 
of surfaced roads, the total cost of 
which, including bridges, was more 
than $10,000,000. The road mat- 
erials laboratory plays an important 
part in Kansas highway construc- 
tion. The laboratory has been de- 
signated as the official laboratory of 
the Kansas highway commission and 
all materials used in state highway 
construction must be approved by 
the laboratory. Inspecting engineers 
from the laboratory are constantly in 
attendance at various localities in 
Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma, 
where cement, brick and other high- 
way materials are manufactured. 


A new bulletin entitled "Road 
Materials of Kansas" by C. H. Schol- 
er, which has just been published by 
the engineering experiment station of 
the college, gives a summary of the 
results of the tests upon the natural 
road building materials of Kansas as 
made in the road materials labora- 


It includes a brief non-technical 
discussion of the desirable proper- 
ties of natural materials for use in 
highway and concrete construction 
together with a description of the 
methods used in testing highway 
materials. The test results are tab- 
ulated in a compact and readily ac- 
cessible form for reference. 

The bulletin was prepared 'with 
authentic data upon the properties 
of highway materials found in var- 
ious sections of the state but much 
of the information relative to sand, 
gravel and stone is equally valuable 
in concrete construction. 

F. D. Farrell, director of the Kansas 
station commented. "The investiga- 
tions of these scientists, while de- 
signed primarily to assist In the im- 
provement of agriculture, produce 
results, in the form of new facts, 
which benefit all the industries and 
all the people either directly or in- 
directly. Some of the most useful 
knowledge we have regarding human 
nutrition, for example, has come to 
us from the study of the nutrition of 
domestic livestock. And the control 
we now have of certain dangerous 
human diseases, as, for example, yel- 
low fever and malaria, has come 
from the study of diseases of farm

Forty-seven technical articles for 
publication were contributed by the 
members of the staff of the Kansas 
agricultural experiment station dur-

1922. These scientific contributions 
were made by the members of the 
station staff In addition to a large 
number of popular articles contribu- 
ted to newspapers and magazines 
during the past year. 

The scientific papers cover a var- 
iety of subjects, ranging from an 
article by Dr. James B. Ackert on 
"The Relations of the Domestic 
Chicken to the Dissemination of 
Hookworm Disease" to one by Dr. 
J. H. Merrill on "The Correlation

Tests on Q.unlity of Stone, Steel, and 
Cement Hnn High — Finished Pro- 
duct Safe 

Visitors to the Aggie athletic field 
lately have bothered John Grady, resi- 
dent engineer in charge of the con- 
struction of the Memorial stadium, 
to such an extent that he has been 
literally forced to print a public 
statement regarding certain features 
of the structure which seem to occas- 
ion innumerable questions. He gave 
the facts which follow to a reporter 
who was bothering him the other 

Each unit of the memorial stad- 
ium weighs more than half a million 
pounds. The material used consists 
of 22,500 pounds of steel and' 166 
cubic feet of concrete. 

The perpendicular height of the 
.seating deck is 35 feet and from the 
top seat to the botton seat it is ap- 
proximately 90 feet. The length of 
the front rows of seats is 51 feet, 
while the top row measures 56 feet 
6 inches in length. 

The stadium is constructed of the 
very best material and according to 
the latest methods In concrete con- 
struction. All the gravel and cem- 
ent is graded and tested before and 
after mixing, so there is no question 
about its durability. The breaking 
point of the steel for re-enforcing is 
tested before it is used. 

The proportion of cement to gravel 
is 1 to 3 1^ and to this mixture is 
added a small amount of high grade 
lime as water proofing and to keep 
the moisture content more uniform, 
thus reducing stresses caused by 
wetting and drying. Tests on this 
material showed a resistance of 3,200 
pounds per square inch, although 
2,000 pounds is considered enough. 

Standing on the top row and look- 
ing straight down to the bottom row 
one is impressed with the curve 
which appears to be a sag in the 
middle of the structure. This curve 
is produced by gradually increasing 
the height of the risers from 10 in- 
ches for the first few rows of seats 
to 131^ inches for the top rows. 
Due to this feature of construction, 
every seat will command a clear 
sweep of the entire athletic field.

C. AKricnltural BnlldInK, Readj by 

September, 1023, at Present 

Rate of Progress 

Stone workers engaged in the con- 
struction of the $275,000 west wing 
of Waters ball, agricultural building 
of Kansas State Agricultural college, 
have reached the top of the wall of 
the first story. Work is moving so 
rapidly that the contractor stated 
Saturday it is possible the roof may 
be on by Christmas. At the present 
rate of progress the building will be 
ready for occupancy by the beginning 
of the 1923 school year. 

The exterior will be a duplicate 
of the east wing which was completed 
in 1912. The new wing will accommo- 
date the departments of dairy hus- 
bandry, poultry husbandry, and agri- 
cultural economics. 


The dairy department will occupy 
the first two floors of the new wing. 
This department is now housed in a 
building 17 years old and lacking 
much of the modern equipment that 
the development of the industry has 
made necessary in the last 15 years. 

Accommodations afforded in the 
new wing of Waters hall will pro- 
vide the dairy department with facil- 
ities as good as any in the country. 
On the floors devoted to this de- 
partment will be an ice cream labor- 
atory, a market milk laboratory, 
three dairy research laboratories, a 
cold storage plant, class rooms, and 


On the north end of the wing 
will be a one story annex 50 feet 
square for use as a creamery and 
dairy manufacturing laboratory. A 
similar annex is to be added to the 
north end of the east wing for use 
by the animal husbandry department 
as a meats laboratory. It was de- 
sirable to have single rooms with 
three outside exposures for these 
laboratories on account of ventila- 
tion requirements. 

A large part of the top floor of the 
new wing will be taken by the agri- 
cultural economics department, the 
youngest but second in point of en- 
rolment in the agricultural division. 
At least two rooms on the floor will 
be used by students of the agricul- 
tural division for organization meet- 
ings. One class room will be equip- 
ped for illustrated lectures.

Writing 250 years ago, Samuel 
Pepys, English gentleman, scholar, 
confidential friend of King Charles 
II., tells of a stop which he and his 
wife made overnight at a remote inn. 
When they got up in the morning, he 
says, they found the bed "neat but 
lousy — which made us merry." 

Today any of us would consider 
the condition of the bed in that re- 
mote inn justification for calling 
in the health officers, disinfecting 
our clothing, and taking maybe two 
or three serums. No doubt we are 
right in our point of view. Samuel 
Pepys was foolhardy, although he 
didn't know It. 

But Samuel Pepys had one quality 
that many of us today haven't. He 
was happy. With his limited know- 
ledge of sanitation, with his crude 
outlook on many other things, he 
had fun. 

It is doubtful If there is any more 
happiness in the world now than 
there was in the time of Samuel 
Pepys. Perhaps there is not so 
much. Yet, on the face of things, 
it seems there ought to be more. 
Certainly we have more material 
means for happiness. We have auto- 
mobiles and chewing gum and bath- 
tubs and telephones and football and 
bobbed hair and phonographs and 
goodness knows how many other 
inventions designed for our pleasure. 
It's rather ungrateful of us not 
to be happy, isn't if? What's the 
matter, anyhow"? Have we too 
many things? 

The last question touches the root 
of the matter. We have not too 
many things Intrinsically. Perhaps 
we have, however, too many things 
for our own capacity to use them. 
We have advanced materially much 
faster than we have advanced intel- 
lectually or spiritually. This is in- 
dicated clearly enough by our read- 
iness to turn to the ends ot war any 
new material invention that posses- 
ses any possible military usefulness. 
We are ready to use material pro- 
gress for antisocial aims. We have 
not reached the point of consider- 
ing sufficiently the fundamental wel- 
fare of ourselves and our neighbors, 
to say nothing of the welfare of all 

We shall have no complete satis- 
faction or happiness — nothing even 
approaching these qualities — until 
our intellectual and spiritual pro- 
gress catches up with our material 
progress. As the matter now stands, 
we are like the illiterate ditch dig- 
ger who suddenly inherits a million 
dollars. We have a great material 
fortune in our hands, but we have 
no idea what to do with it.

The Land of the Blue Door 

The Emporia Gazette 

New Mexico, southwestern Colorado, and northern 
Arizona, an empire larger than western Europe, is a land 
that is different. 

It is the land of the blue door. The blue door marks 
the home of the man who has adopted majority rule, the 
jury system, the equal rights for all, and the philosophy 
of the hustler, with reservations. Behind the blue door 
there is some respect for these things perhaps, but no 
great admiration. The blue door, behind which lives the 
Spaniard, the Mexican, and sometimes the Indian or the 
white man who has learned the ways of the Latin people 
and to value the good in them — the blue door is the dead 
line across which the Puritan civilization of our fore- 
fathers has not stepped. 

The blood of the conquerors of the new world gov- 
erns the land of the blue door today. The ballot box, 
the American judicial system, the Puritan Invaders, have 
not unseated the dominion of the Spaniards. The old 
Spanish families still have the power of life and death 
In New Mexican politics and social activities. In New 
England the old families have surrendered to the Irish, 
who are in turn threatened with the Italian and the 
French. But in New Mexico an Otero or a Chavls is still 
somebody. So the Santa Fe fiesta was dominated by the 
Spanish and the Indians. The Mexican who likes to be 
called a native did not have a look-in, and all the pale 
face from our great, middle west had to do with the 
show was to pay for it. He and the Mexican were out-

To a bright young mountaineer,

"No, I can't read a book." 
"Why, you read well; you mean 
you don't want to." 

"No, I can't. I've tried often. It's 
always just this way. I take up a 
book that I want to read, and I read 
a few lines, and then a fly or some 
bug comes bothering around me, and 
I have to stop and swipe him. Then 
my elbow begins to tickle and I have 
to scratch it. Presently the chair 
gets so hard and uncomfortable that 
I ache all over and can't stand it an- 
other minute; so I throw myself on 
the floor, and just 'resolute' myself 
to read. But before I get another 
page done, I get an awful itch in the 
middle of my back, and I throw away 
the book and I'm gone." — St. An-

graduate, stands at the parting of 
the ways today. Shall be or sh* 
continue an educational career 
through college or will it be best to 
go out into the world now? Why 
should one put the time and expense 
into additional training? 

Probably the first item to consider 
Is that of competition with one's fel- 
lows, which Is becoming keener every 
year. One must be able to do things 
beyond the average man if be is to 
get the maximum rewards. This may 
take one of two forms: He can pro- 
duce some commodity which society 
needs better than the average person 
can do it, or he may deliver great 
amounts of some material at a lower 
cost. In either case it takes train- 
ing and ability*. While one may 
bare real skill along some line, he 
never will get the greatest distance 
in its development until he has had 
some experience under men who are 
authorities on this subject. 

One can get this training in a 
college with less trouble than in any 
other way. He is surrounded by 
other students also interested in the 
same things In which he believes, 
and he comes in contact with special- 
ists and equipment needed for the 
teaching of some certain subject in 
the best way. Perhaps this will be 
farming; If one expects to follow 
agriculture in this state and wishes 
to get a higher education along 
this line he naturally will go to the 
Kansas State Agricultural college. 
Perhaps one is interested in engi- 
neering, in which case he might de- 
sire to enter the excellent engineer- 
ing courses offered there. Or bo 
may prefer veterinary science, archi- 
tecture or some other line. 

Certainly he should take what 
he wishes. There Is no more reason 
for this erroneous idea that a farm- 
er's boy should be a farmer than 
there is that a doctor's son should 
be a doctor. A man will do the best, 
other things being equal, in the thing 
in which he has the greatest personal 
interest, and the greatest belief. 

The cost of a real education In 
agriculture at Manhattan is low. A 
very large proportion of the students 
are working their way through col- 
lege, in whole or in part. The main 
thing required for success is the pur- 
pose to win; one must have the am- 
bition to work toward a definite 
ideal. If one has this, the lack of 
rich parents cannot keep him from 
an education which will enable him 
to win in the keener competition that 
is sure to come. — F. B. Nichols in the 
Kansas Farmer and Mall and Breeze.

Hard Times Bring Better Job 

R. H. Oliver, '17, Citizens' Electric 
company, 1013 Locust street, Des

Hard Times. He says: 

"When the slump came last year 
the General Electric cut me adrift, 
but fortunately I fell heir to a Job 
paying more and affording more 
pleasant work. I have charge of 
power plant construction, and work 
with the boss from whom I learn 
something new most of the time.

be completed before we lose our ini- 
tial punch and pep. I am willing 
and anxious to do my bit, and when

thing the alumni association has

only a game. 

old class rooms where as seniors you 
attempted to work instructors for 
grades that juniors now are getting. 

You will find a college that is 
adding value to your degree every 
day it operates; that has emerged 
from adolescence and strives with 
the mightiest, yet never overlooks 
opportunity to serve the people who 
maintain it. 

There was a time when the annual 
defeat by K. U. was regarded as the 
mark of an unsuccessful season. No 
longer is it regarded here as the point 
on which the scales break. Two years 
ago the Aggies lost to K. U. and then 
went to Norman and tied up the Soon- 
ers who had won a decisive victory 
over the Jayhawks Earlier in the sea- 
son and stood topnotch in the Valley. 

The Aggies last year defeated here 
the same aggregation that again had 
plucked the Jayhawk's feathers, and 
tied up for first honors in the Valley 
percentages, second only to Nebraska. 

In other words, the K. U. game is 
not the game but a game. It spells 
neither success nor failure for the sea- 
son — simply, it figures in the per- 

Will we beat K. U.? The query 
no longer is ominous. It will be a 
fight. The Jayhawk will be minus 
some feathers. And the Aggies will 
be a step nearer Nebraska — the bully 
boy of the bunch.

The Aggie squad is not pointed for 
the K. U. game, but for the last 
game of the schedule. Should the 
Wildcats win from the Jayhawks and 
lose the remainder of the schedule, 
the season would be a disaster. For 
the Aggies now are playing more than 
K. U. They're playing the Mis- 
souri valley and the best it produces. 

It's a changed attitude on the part 
of Kansas State. It's the change that 
comes with the emergence from ado- 
lescence. The feeling which accom- 
panies it permeates not only the ath- 
letes but the college family. It grad- 
ually is radiating into the strong 
alumni body mothered by the Institu- 

College Is Favorably Known 

C. M. Conrad, '21, engaged in re- 
search work with the agricultural 
experiment station of the University 
of Maryland, College Park, finds his 
work "very interesting." 

"I have heard numerous comments 
very favorable to K. S. A. C. since 
I have been here and I was glad 
that I could say I was one of her 

So say we all of us. 

Only a few years ago the Aggies, 
fearful of results, hesitated to step 
from the Kansas conference into the 
Missouri valley. Under the stricter 
rules and stronger competition of 
teams with wonderful prowess suffi- 
ciently consistent to defeat K. U., 
couldn't beat even the Jayhawks. 
there was no chance. The Aggies 
The step would be suicidal. 

The Aggies didn't know them- 
selves. They had small faith in their 
ability to play and fight the biggest 
boys in school. They almost were 
content to continue the doubtful 
pleasure of beating up the little fel- 
lows. That wasn't sportsmanship. 

A. A. Is Vital Factor 

That the alumni association will 
continue to push forward and be a 
real connecting link between the col- 
lege and the alumni, is the desire of 
Earle W. Frost, '20, 620 West 116th 
Street, New York. 

"The association has by its work 
of the past year shown itself to be 
a tremendously vital factor and de- 
serving of the support of every al- 
umnus," he says. "The active mem- 
bership is still far short of what it 
should be. Procrastination is the 
chief hindrance, I suspect." 

Frost has entered his third year's 
work in the law school of Columbia 
university. He received practical ex- 
perience in an office in the Wall 
street district last summer. 

Third District Alumni Organize 

Out of a basket dinner at Rivet- 
side Park, Independence, September 
3, grew the Third Congressional Dis- 
trict Alumni association of K. S. A. 
C. The picnic was planned by Earl 
J. Evans, '06, and Florence (Sweet) 
Evans, '07, Independence. It was 
well attended by graduates, present 
and former students of the college. 

The district is made up of Chau- 
tauqua, Cherokee, Cowley, Crawford, 
Elk, Labette, Montgomery, Neosho, 
and Wilson counties. Earl J. Evans 
was elected president, J. O. Tulloss, 
'99, Sedan, was elected secretary- 
treasurer. The president Is to ap- 
point a vice-president from each of 
the nine counties who with the two 
officers elected shall constitute an 
executive committee. 

The object of the association as set 
forth in the constitution is "to fur- 
ther and promote the interests of the 
College in every way possible, and 
to acquaint the graduates, former 
students and their families with each 
other and the needs and development 
of the college." 

M. F. Ahearn, '13, director of 
athletics, and Oley Weaver, '11, ex- 
ecutive secretary of the alumni as- 
sociation, were present. The follow- 
ing are charter members of the dis- 
trict association: 

Allie (Peckham) Cordry, '82, Par- 
sons; A. W. Cllne, fs'04, Coffey- 
ville; J. 0. Tulloss, '99, Sedan; Earl 
J. Evans, '06, and Florence (Sweet) 
Evans, '07, Independence; S. 9. 
Young, '08, Coffeyville; Vesta 
Smith, '13, Coffeyville; Harold Ew- 
ers, '15, Independence; R. E. Clegg, 
'22, Coffeyville; R. L. Bubgardner, 
•22, Oswego; Ruth Floyd, '22, Sedan, 
and H. M. Cole, Independence. 

The secretary-treasurer of the di»- 
trict association was at one time a 
member of the board of regents of 
the college. 

OliTer Goes To Missouri 

G. W. Oliver, '20, is teaching vo- 
cational agriculture and coaching 
athletics in the Cameron (Mo.) high 
school. Note the apology, 

"I never dreamed that I would 
ever leave Kansas, but as the college 
recommended me for this place I 
accepted. I shall keep in touch with 
doings at the college and will get 
back once in awhile. Will sure be 
back for Homecoming. Being a 'K' 
man, I couldn't miss the K. U. — Ag- 
gie game." 

So K. S. A. C, goaded by the neces- 
sity of playing under Missouri valley 
rules if it wished to meet Missouri 
valley teams, applied for valley mem- 
l)er8hip and was admitted. 


Ivor Mall, '18, and Mrs. Mall an-

20 at Manhattan.

one. The Aggies were Invited guests 
on the schedule of big fellows who

freshman squads afforded. The ar-

Ask Missouri, the "show me" boys.

typical of the college and all of its 
departments. Entrance requirements

are stepping into responsible posi- 

Much Straw, Little Wheat 

H. A. Praeger, '08, and Gertrude 
(Grizzell) Praeger, '08, with their 
five children are still on the wheat 
farm near Claflin. "Dutch" says 
they expect to stay in the business 
as long as they can make a living. 

"Our wheat crop," he says, "turned 
out an average of 17 bushels, 
which wasn't so bad considering the 
fall and winter. However, we cut 
enough straw to make a 50 bushel 
crop. We had a piece of summer fal- 
low which turned out 30 bushels to 
the acre, but the patch wasn't large 

Praeger hopes the alumni will all 
stand behind the association, which 
has two active members in the Prae- 
ger family. 

Chicago Alumni to Cooperate 

"The work which has been so 
nobly done by the alumni associa- 
tion during the past year Is worthy 
of our untiring efforts and you may 
be assured of the very heartiest co- 
operation on the part of the branch 
of the association now existing in 
Chicago and of which I have the 
honor of being president. We are 
all rooters."— David G. Robertson, 
'86, 1140 Otis building, Chicago. 

H. A. O'Brien, '19, and Annette 
(Perry) O'Brien, '16, 44 North Park 
street, East Orange, N. J., announce 
the birth August 31 of a daughter, 
Ivuthryn Harriette. "The baby al- 
ready is slated to go to K. S. A. C." 

So you're not coming back to Al- 
ma Mater to see alone new and im- 
r roved football. You're coming a 
(lay or two before that to see at work 
the machinery which has supplanted 
what you thought nigh perfect in 
your student days. You may visit the

county high school. And on the 
side, he finds time to root for K. S. 
A. C. and the alumni association. 


Lovctt Boosts A. A. Work 

Claude Lovett, '16, owner of Hom- 
er Creek stock farm, Neal, plans to 
let someone else feed the purebred 
Shorthorns while he comes back to 
college for a day or so to renew ac- 
quaintances, possibly at Homecom- 
ing. Claude is an active member who 
wishes "to see the work of the alum- 
ni association go on." 


Miss Frances Casto, '22, and Mr. 
Ray Marshall, '22, were married 
September 6 at Liberal. Mr. and 
Mrs. Marshall are at home at 1630 
Leavenworth street, Manhattan. 

"A Mighty Fine School" 

Let Ruth G. Taylor, '19, state 
supervisor of home economics, Santa 
Fe, N. M., tell it, 

"I believe that I am only begin- 
ning properly to appreciate my Alma 
Mater. I was in Corvallis, Ore., not 
long ago attending a vocational home 
economics conference. When people 
would ask, 'And what Is your col- 
lege?' 1 would answer, 'Manhattan.' 
They invariably exclaimed, 'Oh, 
Manhattan! Well, a mighty fine 
school.' Of course that was not news 
to me but I was mighty glad to see 
that they properly appreciated it." 

Miss Taylor assures the alumni 
.issoclatlon of her support and ap- 
preciation of its work. 






'With Awakening, Edncation in Subject 

BecomcB More Importaat, Kaaaaa 

Spe«ialiat States In Paper Read 

at International Consreas 

Beekeeping In America Is in a state 
of transition, passing from the small 
Indifferent beekeeper into the hands 
of the trained specialist or commer- 
cial beekeeper, according to a paper 
by Dr. J. H. Merrill, state apiarist of 
Kansas, read at the sixth Internation- 
al Congress of Apiculture, Marseilles, 
France, September 18. The sub- 
ject of Doctor Merrill's paper was 
"Education Along Beekeeping Lines 
In the United States." He was one 
of a small group of Americans hon- 
ored by being requested to prepare 
a paper for the congress. 

"With this awakening," the paper 
continues, "has come an increased 
demand for some method of procur- 
ing and disseminating information 
on beekeeping. In an effort to meet 
this demand, the agricultural col- 
leges throughout the country are 
establishing courses on apiculture 
and the investigators In the various 
state experiment stations are devot- 
ing considerable time to research 
problems in beekeeping." 


Doctor Merrill's paper, in part, 

"The subject of beekeeping is 
more or less briefly taught in many 
of the high schools. But it is not pos- 
sible to do much more there than 
simply to arouse the pupil's interest 
In beekeeping. The real teaching of 
apiculture properly falls on the agri- 
cultural colleges. 

"In most of the colleges where 
beekeeping is taught, an effort is 
made to thoroughly Instruct the stu- 
dents in a knowledge of bee be- 
havior rather than apparatus and 
practices. This method of procedure 
Is based on the fact that man cannot 
change the nature of bees and the 
better he understands them and their 
responses to different stimuli the 
better beekeeper he will become. If 
he is acquainted with their habits 
then it will be an easy matter for 
him to devise apparatus and methods 
applicable to bis needs. In those 
colleges where beekeeping Is taught, 
apiaries are usually maintained 
where tl^e student is enabled to se- 
cure actual practice in the manipula- 
tion of bees in conjunction with his 
class room Instruction. 


"Of the 48 states, 29 are at pres- 
ent conducting courses on the sub- 
ject of beekeeping. In 10 colleges 
there is but one course given; In 
seven there are two; in three there 
are four, and in two eight courses 
are offered. Five other colleges are 
carrying on extension work, corres- 
pondence courses, or short courses 
for the benefit of apiculture. The 
courses vary in importance accord- 
ing to the amount of time allowed 
for presentation. The tendency is to- 
ward installing a greater number of 
courses which will provide for more 
thorough instruction In the subject. 

"At present the colleges are ham- 
pered in the carrying out of this 
plan by the lack of well trained men. 
As students are constantly being 
graduated each year, this objection 
should soon be overcome. While 
the statistics given as to the num- 
ber of courses devoted to apiculture 
apply to present conditions, they 
probably would not hold true 
a year from now, due to the in- 
creased demand for instruction in the 
subject of beekeeping. As it is the 
purpose of the colleges to train their 
students as specialists, they will be 
qualified to act as teachers, inves- 
tigators, or to engage in commercial 


"The teaching of beekeeping in 
our colleges is very important, but 
the necessity for and the value of 
aplcultural research in the experi- 
ment stations must not be overlook- 

ed. The research workers of today 
are proving the truth or falsity of 
old theories and adding new facts 
to our present knowledge of bee- 
keeping. Of all the entomological 
projects in the experiment stations 
of the country, those devoted to bee- 
keeping rank second in number, 
constituting nearly one-half of the 
problems devoted to entomology. 
"Nineteen states are today avail- 
ing themselves of the privilege of 
doing extension work in beekeeping. 
The extension workers are bee spec- 
ialists engaged in conveying infor- 
mation concerning proper methods 
of beekeeping directly to the bee- 
keepers. In nearly every state in 
the union there are beekeepers' as- 
sociations which meet periodically 
and the extension workers are al- 
ways present when possible. In ad- 
dition to attending these meetings, 
these specialists are constantly trav- 
eling from point to point, meeting 
with the beekeepers in their own 
apiaries and spreading the gospel of 
better beekeeping." 




To Cooperate with Leland Stanford in 

The department of agricultural 
economics of the Kansas experiment 
station, and the food research insti- 
tute of Leland Stanford university 
have entered upon a cooperative ar- 
rangement for the study of wheat 
marketing in Kansas. Research in 
this field was begun nearly two years 
ago and the project as outlined cov- 
ers the field of wheat marketing from 
the threshing machine to the central 
markets. The food research insti- 
tute has as one of its alms the se- 
curing of reliable information on 
problems of handling and processing 
wheat from the producer to the ulti- 
mate consumer. The institute and 
the experiment station have the same 
purpose in view, namely the securing 
of reliable Information. This made 
it desirable to get together in cooper- 
ative effort. 

The funds placed at the disposal 
of the experiment station by the in- 
stitute have enabled the department 
of agricultural economics to add an- 
other man to its research force. H. 
I. Richards has been chosen for this 
position. He was graduated from 
the Kansas State Agricultural col- 
lege last June, agricultural econom- 
ics having been his major study. He 
will work with Prof. R. M. Green, 
who is leader of the wheat market- 
ing project. 


Approiirinttonn Are I.nrirer Thnn for 

County appropriations for agri- 
cultural and home demonstration 
agent work are larger for the year 
1922-23 than for 1921-22. Reports 
to the county agent leader's office 
here from 49 counties show an aver- 
age appropriation of $2,187. The 
average for the 60 county agent 
counties last year was $2,060. Elev- 
en counties have not yet made their 

The highest county appropriation- 
yet reported is $5,400, made by 
Shawnee county. A few of the coun- 
ties made the minimum appropria- 
tion of $1,200. 

In addition to the funds appro- 
priated by the county commissioners, 
each organized county receives $1,- 
000 a year from federal Smith-Lev- 
er funds for county agent work, and 
those counties employing home dem- 
onstration agents, receive from $1,- 
000 to $1,200 additional. 

"This increase shows a tendency 
for county agent work to be more 
largely supported from public funas 
and less from farm bureau member- 
ship fees," Karl Knaus, county agent 
leader, said. "This does not mean a 
weakening of the county farm bu- 
reaus; It is merely a change in the 
method of financing the work."

final week of preparation for the 
stlffest schedule li^ Aggie football 
history, 10 letter men are turning 
out daily for practice. "Susie" 
Sears, fullback on the Varsity team 
during the last two years, reported 
for practice Friday and "Swede" Ax- 
line drew a uniform Monday. 

Sears arrived just in time to clear 
up a vexing situation occasioned by 
the injury of Butcher, substitute 
fullback. Butcher had his nose 
broken in a scrimmage the latter 
part of the week. Two other Aggies 
in addition to Butcher are on the hos- 
pital list, Leiter, lineman, and 
Cox, quarterback. All of the in- 
jured players will be out of the 
game for a number of weeks. 


The process of eliminating play- 
ers has settled down to about 24 
men, although fully 50 are reporting 
every day. Coach Bachman and his 
assistants are running three teams 
with 15 or 20 extra players working 
on the tackling dummy and kicking. 
Nine letter men probably will start 
the game against Washburn here 
next Saturday, but undoubtedly oth- 
ers will get a chance to demonstrate 
their abililty. 

The probable lineup: 

L. E. — Webber, substitute end and 

center on last year's team, 
1^. T. — Nichols, one year "K" man. 
1.1. G. — Hahn, captain and three 
C. — Perham, freshman of last 
" year. 
R. G. — Schlndler, two-letter man. 
R. T. — Staib, varsity man for the 

last three years. 
R. E. — Sebring, two letter man. 
Q. B. — Swartz, one letter man. 
R. H. — Burton, three stripes. 
. L,. H. — Stark, one letter man. 
F. B. — Sears, two letter man. 

This lineup is not official. Munn, 
playing his first year on varsity, may 
beat Webber- out of left end. Hutton, 
although 15 pounds lighter than 
Perham, is fighting hard for center, 
Laswell, 190-pound lineman who 
played with Bachman on the Great 
Lakes' team in 1917 and who was 
on the championship Atlantic fleet 
team in 1918, stands a good chance 
to get a regular berth at guard or 
tackle. "Red" Brown, quarterback 
and halfback, will hardly replace 
Swartz unless the unexpected hap- 
pens and Washburn falls easy prey 
to the Aggies, but Brown is an all 
round good man. He kicks well, is 
a reliable passer, and carries the 
ball unusually well. 

Clements and Portnier, the former 
substitute of last year, and the latter 
on the 1921 freshman team, may be 
considered still in the running for 
fullback. Brandley, substitute half- 
back, has Improved considerably 
since last year and Shaw, another 
backfleld man, is being watched by 
the coaches. Doolan is an end of con- 
siderable promise, while Franz, who 
is playing his fourth year with var- 
sity, is bending every effort to earn 
his first "K" this season. 


Recent Aggie-Washburn scores 
seem to indicate a fairly easy hurdle 
for K. S. A. C. next Saturday. Since 

1911 the scores nave been as fol-

The game with Washburn is a re- 
turn match for the 0-0 tie of Thanks- 
giving day, 1920. The Aggie sched- 
ule would not permit a date with 
Washburn last season, so that it had 
to be postponed until this year.

Washburn will have an advantage 
over the Aggies in being permitted 
to use first year men. The Topeka 
college has a line which will out- 
weigh the Aggie forward wall more 
than 10 pounds to the man. Wash- 
burn is somewhat handicapped, how- 
ever, in working with a new coach, 
G. D. Vosburg, who came to the 
Ichabods at the beginning of the 
present season from the state normal 
school at Whitewater, Wis. The 
team will also be handicapped by 
playing away from home. Overcon- 
fldence on the part of the Aggies may 
work in favor of the visitors. 


The Aggie coaching staff was 
strengthened last week by the addi- 
tion of two men, which brings Coach 
Bachman's staff to five members. All 
of his assistants except Ted Curtlss, 
who coaches freshmen, are men- 
bers of the college faculty or post- 
graduate students who volunteer 
their time.. 

The new members are Frank Root 
and V. M. Williams. Root was an 
Aggie right end and halfback from 
1,911 to 1914. He was a successful 
high school coach at Winfield in 
1915, 1916, and 1917. He is taking 
postgraduate work in the college 
this season. Williams, who is a 
member of the extension division 
faculty, was a line coach and scout 
for the University of Minnesota last 
season. He played on the Minnesota 
team previous to that. 

Captain Jackson, Doctor Muldoon, 
and Doctor Holtz, who were members 
of Bachman's coaching staff last sea- 
son are still giving their time each 
afternoon on the football field.

Russian knapweed, a new weed in 
Kansas, has appeared in the north- 
eastern part of the state. It was re- 
ported to the seed laboratory of the 
Kansas State Agricultural college by 
J. W. Head of Clifton, Washington 

The weed is a native of the Cas- 
pian sea region of southern Russia 
where It is a pest In alfalfa fields. 
Seed of this plant was brought into 
this country in shipments of Turke- 
stan alfalfa, it is believed. Farmers 
who have planted Turkestan alfalfa 
are advised to see it any of these 
weeds are present. Turkestan alfalfa 
seed looks like old seed of ordinary 

If there is any question about 
seed which farmers contemplate buy- 
ing, the station suggests that it 
would be advisable to send samples 
for analysis to the seed laboratory of 
the station at Manhattan. 

Russian knapweed is a perennial 
from one to two feet in height, with 
a long stout root. Because of this 
long root the weed is likely to be- 
come a pest. This feature of its 
growth makes eradication difficult. 

Circular 94, just issued by the ex- 
periment station, urges that farmers 
and others Interested cooperate with 
the station to iu-^ end that the spread 
of the weed in Kansas be controlled. 
The circular gives detailed descrip- 
tion and illustrations of the plant.

pasure management, and Mrs. E. P. 
Harling, seed analyst, are joint 
authors of the publication, a copy of

been estimated that the average stu- 
dent spends $50 a month. Twenty- 
five hundred students spend $1,125,-

L. B. CA1.I., K. 8. A. C AGRONOMIST, 

8n»eriorlt7 of New Variety of W^heat 

Over Turkey DemonBtrated by 12 

Years of Comparative Growth— 

Objections Explained 

The statement regarding Kanred 
wheat reproduced herewith was pre- 
pared by L. B. Call, agronomist of 
the Kansas agricultural experiment 
station, In the form of a letter reply- 
ing to a communication from C. "W. 
Yoder of Morrill. Mr. Yoder stated 
that he had heard many complaints 
this season about Kanred wheat. 

"The largest yields have been 
where Turkey was sown," he wrote. 
"Whether justly or not the cause Is 
attributed to the variety sown. The 
dealers complain that Kanred does 
not test as good as Turkey and that 
Its milling qualities are Inferior to 
the Turkey. There are no ads In lo- 
cal papers for Kanred seed wheat 
this season, but 1 have heard many 
Inquiries for Turkey. Are the ob- 
jections mentioned well founded 
and if so why was Kanred boosted 
so by the station and farm papers?" 

The reason that this institution 
and the farm press In this state have 
recommended Kanred wheat for 

considerable difficulty with winter 
killing, and in 1916 when the wheat 
was very seriously damaged by 
orange leaf rust. It was largely due 
to the resistance of Kanred to orange 
leaf rust that It made such an out- 
standing high yield in 1916. It is 
only in seasons of this kind that we 
naturally expect Kanred to greatly 
outyield the old types of Turkey 
wheat, because it is only in these 
seasons when the variety has any 
characteristic that will enable it to 
produce better than the old varieties, 


Our cooperative tests with farmers 
substantiate the results that have 
been obtained at this institution. 
We have compared Kanred and Tur- 
key in cooperation tests with farmers 
since 1914. From 1914 to 1917 there 
were a comparatively small num- 
ber of tests and in giving the yields 
of the two varieties, I have averaged 
the tests for the state as a whole. 
Since 1917 we have had many more 
tests, and I have divided the state 
into sections and given yields for 
Kanred and Turkey for northeastern 
Kansas and for the central and west- 
ern portion of the state. The results 
of these tests have been as follows: 




Althoash Handicapped by Lack of 

Fnnda Animal Husbandry Depart- 

partment Comes ThTough with 

Creditable Showing 

Animals from the state agricultur- 
al college's herds and flocks, on ex- 
hibition at the fairs at Topeka and 
Hutchinson were awarded 52 first 
prizes, 23 second prizes, and 21 
third prizes. Seven fourths, one 
fifth, two sixths and one seventh were 
also awarded. 

Considering the handicaps under 
which the animal husbandry depart- 
ment of K. S. A. C. is working, it is 
remarkable that so many first prizes 
were received. One of the greatest 
handicaps facing the department la 
the insufficient amount of funds as 
compared with the capital of Indi- 
vidual breeders. 


"The college has never had money 
enough to pay more than $150 for 
a herd boar, yet we showed our pigs 
against ones sired by boars costing 
from $3,000 to $10,000," said Prof. 
C. W. McCampbell, head of the ani- 
mal husbandry department, In dis- 
cussing the winnings of his animals. 

Professor McCampbell stated that 
individual breeders are also in a po- 
sition to pay more money for prize 
bulls for breeding their stock. 

Another handicap is the fact that 
while the individual breeder may con- 
centrate all his efforts on one breed 
of animal, the college must divide 
its energy among many different 
breeds and types. While the indi- 
vidual may select an animal from a 
herd of from 100 to 300 head, the 
college is limited in selection to from 
10 to 20 head. 

A complete list of college animals

planting in the hard wheat section 
of Kansas is because this variety 
has as an average of many years 
outyielded the old strains of Turkey 

When we consider the yields of 
these two varieties for the last twelve 
years at the Kansas State Agricultur- 
al college, we find that they have 
produced as follows:

You will see that as an average of 
these years, 1911 to 1922, Kanred 
at this institution has produced 3.3 
bushels more wheat to the acre than 
our best selection of the old Turkey 
wheat. During these twelve years, 
however, there have been two years 
when Turkey gave a higher yield to 
the acre than Kanred. These sea- 
sons were 1914 and 1919, two years 
when weather conditions were almost 
ideal as far as moisture was con- 
cerned. In fact, in 1919 there was 
so much moisture that the wheat 
lodged, which accounts for the com- 
paratively low yield of both Kanred 
and Turkey that season. 

There was one year, 1922, when 
the yields of the two varieties were 
identical. In all other years, 
Kanred has exceeded Turkey In yield. 
The greatest difference in yield has 
occurred in those seasons like 1912, 
1917, and 1918, when there was 

Average 24.1 21.2 2.9 

You will notice that as an average 
of nine years Kanred has produced 
ai)proximately three bushels more 
wheat to the acre in central and 
western Kansas than has Turkey. 
As an average of the last five years 
in northeastern Kansas, the differ- 
ence has been a little over two bush- 
els in favor of Kanred. There is 
very seldom a season, however, that 
even in a territory as small as north- 
eastern Kansas, there are not some 
tests where conditions are such that 
Turkey equals or exceeds Kanred in 


This last summer as an average 
of nine tests, Kanred exceeded the 
yield of Turkey by 2.2 bushels in that 
section of the state, but there were 
two cases out of nine where Turkey 
exceeded the yield of Kanred. In 
one test in Doniphan county, Turkey 
made an average yield of approxi- 
mately 22 bushels while Kanred pro- 
duced slightly less than 20. In an- 
other case in Jefferson county, Tur-

Politics throughout the world has 
broken down. Whereas business, 
science, and other phases of life have 
made notable changes, politics is 
still attempting to use the machinery 
of the eighteenth century. The 
breakdown of politics was respon- 
sible for the world war. It is respon- 
sible for present international and 
domestic troubles. 

These viewp were expressed by 
Harold T. Chase, editor of The To- 
peka Daily Capital, in an address 
before the students in the course in 
industrial journalism Monday. 

In contrast with the attitude of 
business men who urge the placing 
of business men in congress, Mr. 
Chase urged the placing of experts, 
not only in legislative bodies, but in 
administrative offices. 

The place of the newspaper in 
bringing about useful changes in 
politics and other fields was emphas- 
ized by the speaker, who pointed out 
that the newspaper has an access to 
the public which no other institu- 
tion possesses. 

"The newspaper is the only organ," 
he said, "which can bring all signi- 
ficant elements of our life into a 
coherent whole. So far we really 
have not found out what the news- 
paper is for — what it really can ac- 

Biology, psychology, and ethics 
were presented by Mr. Chase as the 
most important background for the 
practicing journalist. He laid stress 
on the Importance of studying the 
new objective psychology and ethics 
instead of the old discredited sorts. 
"Now for the first time," he com- 
mented, "these subjects are sciences 
based on actual investigation and not 
on tradition. Upon a grasp of these 
and of biology the whole newspaper 
problem depends." 

Alumni Office Reports Numerous Let- 
ters from Old Grads Who Expect 
to See 'Wlldcat-Jayhawk 
Game October 28 

The Aggies are coming back. 
Numerous letters daily to the alumni 
association's executive secretary tell 
of plans being made to keep clear 
October 28 for a visit to Alma Mater 
and attendance at the Wildcat-Jay- 
hawk football game. And as plans 
are being made by graduates, former 
students, and friends of the college 
to return for the annual fall visit, 
the alumni office is developing a 

The program starts Friday, the 
day before the football game. Class- 
es will be in session as usual through- 
out the day, affording visitors op- 
portunity to see the college at work. 
This is a privilege not afforded Com- 
mencement week visitors, making the 
fall visit more attractive to serious 
minded alumni. 


A dinner is being arranged by the 
stadium committee for Homecoming 
alumni who volunteer to aid in the 
campaign for funds to complete the 
memorial structure. This will pre- 
cede the college and alumni pep meet- 
ing in the auditorium. 

All students organizations have 
been asked to offer no in- 
ducements to visitors that would 
keep them from the • pep meet- 
ing, and most of them already have 
consented. The meeting will be over 
early enough to permit attendance at 
social functions set for a later hour. 


Saturday will be a busy day for 
the visitors. The game, and the ex- 
citement of preparation, will occupy 
the afternoon. In the evening, the 
Aggies believe, a parade will be the 
best form of celebration. Costumes 
will be similar to those worn on like 
occasions in days gone by, and vis- 
itors should provide their own be- 
fore coming — Manhattan stores will 
be sold out. 

Literary societies are planning 
special programs for Saturday night 
to which former members will be 
welcome, Sunday will see all stu- 
dents at church, as usual, where 
late arising friends may find them 
before leaving the city. 


The alumni office does not feel 
the necessity for working out a pro- 
gram in detail, as it is a character- 
istic of visitors to the campus tliat 
they entertain themselves most read- 
ily. Those who have been here before

St. Louis Saturday 

Getting ready for the first Missouri 
Valley conference contest of the pres- 
ent season. Coach Bachman's Aggies 
are putting just a little more time 
into signal practice and scrimmage 
and executing plays with just a little 
more care than previously in prepara- 
tion for the game with Washington 
university at St. Louis Saturday. 

The Wildcats will not have the 
services of Ding Burton, star right 
halfback and pivot man in the much 
feared Aggie forward passing com- 
bination Saturday. Burton received 
a painful injury to his side, probably

Wildcats in the Making 

That the Aggie football squad is 
a credit to the institution was the 
opinion of E. W. Cochrane, sport- 
ing editor of the Kansas City Journal- 
Post, after the game with Washburn 
Saturday. Cochrane was referee. 

"It is a remarkable array of tal- 
ent," be said, "and the team should 
be feared throughout the valley. 
They got off to a good start today 
and should improve with succeeding 

It is typical of Coach Bachman's 
teams that they do Improve rapidly 
as the season ages, each game ser- 
ving to add proficiency to team work 
and individual playing ability. This 
fact, as shown last season, Cochrane 
probably had in mnid. 

Since the Aggies have a very dif- 
ficult schedule this year, no easy 
games alternating with the hard 
ones, continued improvement will be 
necessary to turn in a high percen- 
tage. The Aggies face Oklahoma, 
K. U., Missouri, Ames, and Nebraska 
at weekly intervals. Which Is a 
real assignment. 



A. C. McCIintlc Dies

Another Happy Alamniis 

Elizabeth McCall, '18, superinten- 
dent of public instruction, Trego 
county, Kansas, checks in as an act- 
ive alumnus from Wakeeney. 

"I am glad the alumni association 
is doing such good work, " she says, 
"and I know it will continue in the 
same way." 

Wilkin Sisters Coming Back

mestic art, and Alma Wilkin, '20, 
teacher of domestic science in the 
Reno county high school, Nickerson, 
will be back for the Homecoming 
game October 28. 

Both are very much interested in 
the alumni work, they write, and 
while they are active members of the 
association are sorry they are unable 
to do more. 

A Toast From Hawaii 
"Here's to the success of the Wild- 
cats," writes J. M. Westgate, '97, 
from the U. S. experiment station, 
Honolulu, "may they ever be long on 
the scratch." 

Westgate had the pleasure of at- 
tending Homecoming last year but 
he insists he is too far removed from 
Kansas to make the trip each year, 
He boosts the association from uke- 
lele land. 

The greatest asset a business, an 
individual or a college can have Is 
the spirit of progress. Without that 
all else is largely in vain. With it 
every good thing is possible. 

But progress for a college does not 
mean necessarily the adoption of new 
and radical ideas upon alumni Initi- 
ative without proper consideration. 
Should they prove impractical. It Is 
the college and not the alumni body 
which suffers. 

Progress may be slow or rapid, 
depending upon the degree of con- 
servatism in the administrative of- 
ficers and the alumni. The proper 
consideration of a progressive meas- 
ure should be by both forces before 
its final adoption. 

The Interest and Intelligent sup- 
port of the alumni Is one of the 
greatest sources of strength In the 
college. The interest may be stimu- 
lated in every possible way, but It 
must be exerted only In ways and 
through channels that make for the 
ultimate good of the college. 

It sometimes is difficult to perceive 
in the glamor of the immediate and 
the obvious the wise course to take, 
but it is a duty of the alumni to give 
consideration to the warp and the 
woof from which colleges are made, 
not forgetting the utility and beauty 
of the completed fabric. 

Questions are not to be decided on 
their merits alone but on their ef- 
fect when woven Into the fabric. 
One line of action may be desirable 
when considered separate and apart, 
yet in combination would mar both 
beauty and utility. 

The spirit of progress which re- 
mained as a spark in the college al- 
umni for so long is being fanned 
into a blaze. Properly restricted, 
the fire will be beneficial. Other- 
wise, the energy will be devastating. 
The heat first should be directed to- 
ward the alumni body Itself to purge 
errors, traits, and tendencies which 
retard progress, and to fire the In- 
different with willingness to receive 
and act upon new ideas. Selfishness 
must be consumed. 

Sound motives must ever prevail 
in any helpful alumni )body, and 
willingness to give up fake and tem- 
porary success for vital and perman- 
ent growth; eagerness to utilize 
every wholesome opportunity, en- 
thusiasm to strive for excellence for 
its own sake, and the energy to push 
on. With this spirit, growth — pro- 
gress — is inevitable. 

The world may furnish many op- 
portunities, appreciation will quick- 
en some motives, and the onward 
movement of events can change some 
conditions, but that fire — the spirit 
of progress — must come from within, 
must spring up in a moment of noble 
resolve, and must never be allowed 
to die. 

Examine into the progress and 
success of any business, individual 
or college and you will see how that 
vital spark, fanned into a blaze, 
made all their achievements pos- 
sible — and maybe you will find the 
spark yourself.

Washington Alumni Body Needed 

E. G. Schafer, '07, head of the 
department of farm crops. State Col- 
lege of Washington, Pullman, be- 
lieves there should be a Washington 
organization of K. S. A. C. alumni. 

"It is possible," he says, "that 
some of the members of this state 
organization could get together on 
certain occasions. This would be 
especially desirable if someone from 
the college visited in this state. 
This would offer a means by which 
alumni of this and other states would 
be able to keep In closer touch with 
the college." 

With Schafer leading the agita- 
tion, watch for the announcement ot 
the organization.

Mrs. Mae (Sweet) Hagan, '17, Writes from Java, Stopping Point on 
Trip Around World Upon Which She and Her Husband, J. S. 
Hagan, '16, Set Out Early in Year in Interest of Westinghouse 
Company— Travelers Now in Japan, Having Touched Holland, 
France, Suez, Ceylon, and Sumatra. 

A trip around the world for the 
Westinghouse company was the good 
fortune of J. S. Hagan, '16, and Mae 
(Sweet) Hagan, '17, WUklnsburg, 
Pa. They started eastward early this 
year, through Holland, France, the 
Suez, Ceylon, Sumatra, and Java. 
They now are In Japan. Mrs. Hagan 
wrote June IB from Weltevreden, 
Java, to a friend an account of their 
trip. Excerpts from the letter fol- 

"We have had a very Interesting 
trip and have enjoyed It In spite of 
the monotonous spells here and 
there. After leaving Holland we 
went to Paris for a few days. Un- 
fortunately, It rained practically all 
the time we were there so we did not 
see It under the most favorable aus- 
pices. Also it is a fine place to stay 
away from unless you have lots of 
money or a strong will power to re- 
sist the temptation of the shops. 


"I looked longingly at the big 
polished signs of Worth and Jenny 
and Paquin and other famous ones, 
but of course had no chance to go 
inside. I had better sense Uian to 
try for you know It takes a reference 
and a recommendation, almost as 
strict as that necessary to pass the 
golden portal itself, to get Inside their 
doors. There isn't anything in their 
windows except perhaps a length of 
some beautiful material, a bit of lace, 
or some accessories such as gloves 
or hand bags. They evidently are 
not showing off any of their creations 
for the benefit of the general pub- 

"We embarked at Marseilles, Feb- 
ruary 21, on a Dutch ship. Our first 
stop was Port Said, the dirtiest hole 
on the face of the earth. The ship 
coaled there so we had the greater 
part of a day to amuse ourselves on 
shore. The town seems to consist 
mainly of restaurants and Arab sou- 
venir sellers. They fairly mob you 
with their collections of postage 
stamps, cheap beads, ostrich feath- 
ers and trinkets, to say nothing of 
so-called oriental rugs and tapes- 
tries made in Europe. It's a noisy, 
dirty, smeUy, hot place ,wlth the 
most motley population I ever hope 
to set eyes on — Egyptians, Arabs, 
Turks, Bedouins, Negroes, Indians, 
French, Italian, Greek, English, 
everything under the sun, clothed in 
a wild mixture of turbans, fezes, 
pajamas, cotton night shirts, Euro- 
pean clothing, and the cast oft rags 
of civilization. 

"The crew of Arabs who coaled the 
ship were the most filthy looking 
people that I had ever Imagined In 
my wildest dreams. The Beduoins 
still wear the long robes and scarfs 
with a rope bound about the head 
that we are familiar with In old 
Bible pictures. I saw one old pil- 
grim with his staff and pack who 
might have stepped out of some such 
picture of hundreds of years ago. Even 
the little long eared asses are there, 
weary little beasts carrying immense 
packs or hitched to two wheeled 
carts. The street car line consists of 
horse cars drawn by scraggly flop 
eared mules, driven by a man in a 
turban or a fez. On a side street we 
came upon one car which was stopped 
at the end of the line while the mules 
ate their lunch. 

"We did not go ashore at Suez aa 
the ship anchored out In the harbor 
only long enough to drop the pilot. 
Ten days more brought us to Colom- 
bo, Ceylon, just at lunset. And such 

a sunset! The most gorgeous gleams 
of rose and gold, with the masts of 
the ships in the harbor and the palm 
trees on shore silhouetted against it. 
We did not get ashore until after 
dark so did not see very much of the 
town. My chief impression of Colom- 
bo Is a long row of semi-naked rick- 
sha runners, their brown skins shin- 
ing under the street lights. 

"Our next stop was Padang, Suma- 
tra, a place very much like this, 
though a bit less civilized and per- 
haps even more luxuriantly tropical. 
The houses of the natives there are 
different from those here. They have 
a liking for hand carved balustrades 
and roof points that are quite beyond 
the energies of the natives here. Also 
they set their houses up on tall 
posts, and use the under part as a 
place to keep chickens, stable their 
buffaloes, or pen their pigs, as the 
notion strikes them. The water buf- 
falo is the main domestic animal in 
this part of the world. 

"We reached Batavia, Java, March 
16, and here we have been ever since. 
We have spent most of the time at 
this hotel in a suburb of Batavia. The 
first two weeks of April and the last 
two weeks of May we spent in Band- 
oeng, up in the mountains about 120 
miles from here. It is a much cooler 
place than this, has a very pleasant 
climate in fact, and few mosquitoes. 
This place is an eternal Kansas Au- 
gust and the mosquitoes are plenti- 
ful and exceedingly voracious. We 
will be a thankful pair when Java 
disappears from our view as we 
travel northwestward toward Japan, 
and eventually home. 

"This is an Interesting place. The 
natives are a mixture of the original 
Javanese, Malays, and people from 
other Islands in the Sunda group 
called by the general name of Sun- 
danese. They are small and brown, 
with a somewhat Japanese cast of 
countenance, though their eyes are 
not so slanting or their faces so flat. 
They are a leisurely, unexciteable 
crew, with a constitutional aversion 
to too much work and with no 
thought beyond the day's supply of 
food and clothing. Most of them 
never had on a shoe in their lives. 

"The more elite among them wear 
sandals or the little sole and toe ar- 
rangement peculiar to the Chinese, 
like our 'mules' for bedroom wear. 
The native woman who is all dressed 
up wears a 'sarong' (a sort of skirt 
arrangement) of 'batik' work, a lit- 
tle teajacket sort of blouse of or- 
gandie in some gay color or of white 
lawn with embroidery, a silk scarf, 
two or three bracelets, blouse pins 
made of gold pieces, gold earrings, 
and 'mules' of green velvet with em- 
broidery. She chews betel nut so 
that her lips are scarlet, and her 
brown face is toned down with white 


"The natives love bright colors. 
'Colorful orient' is an apt description 
of this part of the world. When you 
get out into the country districts you 
find the native women wearing noth- 
ing but a sarong tied on Just below 
their arms, the men wearing short 
cotton breeches, a sort of swimming 
trunk effect, and many of the child- 
ren wearing nothing at all. In town 
and in the country both there are 
always natives bathing in the canals, 
men, women, boys, and girls In mixed 

"They are very expert at dressing 

modestly (for this country) and the 
sarongs which both men and women 
wear seem to serve as sort of private 
dressing rooms. -A sarong consistB 
of about three yards of cloth folded 
over and sewed up and down the 
side. They put It on, pull the sur- 
plus to one side, fold it flat across 
the front, and either twist it tight 
about their waists or fasten it with 
a huge buckle, or a long strip of gay 
cloth wound round and round the 
waist. I cannot see just how they 
keep them from slipping loose and 
coming oft but they do not seem to 
have any trouble. 

"The houses are bamboo huts 
roofed with tile or palm leaf thatch. 
They use bamboo for everything from 
a musical Instrument and a water 
carrier to a house and a wagon bed. 
They are pretty good craftsmen in 
many ways. Their irrigation system 
is Interesting. The Dutch have en- 
larged it and introduced improve- 
ments, but on the whole It Is Just as 
It has been for hundreds of years, a 
complicated network which oovers all 
the tillable land, even to the very 
summits of some of the mountains. 

"The rice fields are terraced, as 
you doubtless have read, so that they 
can be flooded, beginning with the 
top one and sending the water down 
over those below. The natives run 
long tunnels through the mountains 
for their irrigation lines, and a rath- 
er uncanny thing about the work is 
that two groups of tunnelers will 
meet exactly as they should and that 
without any mathematical or geomet- 
rical calculations. When the native 
is asked how he can do It he says, 'I 
have it 'in my heart.' 

"The country is beautiful with its 
checkerboards of terraced rice fields 
varying in color from the brown 
stubble to the wavering green of a 
newly planted field. The rice plants 
are started and then set out by hand. 
Just think of the labor involved in 
setting out the plants in these miles 
of rice fields, resembling our acres of 
wheat at home. Then when the rice 
is ripe each separate head is pulled 
by hand, just as you might pull out

carrying matting for house walls. 
The matting is woven in pieces large 
enough for the side of a hut. The 
native bends it till it looks like the

it with hemp or rattan. Then he 
trots off with it on his head. All 
you can see Is the curved piece of 
matting and a couple of brown legs 
flashing along below it, sometimes 
four legs if the piece is unusually 
large. They carry everything im- 
aginable by swinging the object be- 
tween bamboo poles on their should-

er the poles and the more shoulders 
under each end. The native is trans-

covered with apparently all the re- 
spectable sarongs that he possessed.

Pittsburgh District Alamni Meet 

The Pittsburgh District Alumni as- 
sociation, organized June 30, enjoyed 
an outing at Frick's Woods the after- 
noon and evening of Labor day. 
Vera (Olmstead) Hamilton, '19, sec- 
retary of the association, writes, 

"The ideal weather added much to 
the enjoyment of out of door games 
and sports. After a delicious sup- 
per we had a regular business meet- 
ing, unique in that the only light 
was that of a wonderful September 
moon. It was decided to have a 
real Hallowe'en party this fall. 

"The association made plans to 
keep closer in touch with the college, 
and in this connection we are asking 
the different departments to keep us 
informed when anyone ia coming 
through or to Pittsburgh in order 
that we might get in touch with who- 
ever comes.

work, that Prof. George Freeman 
and Adelle (Blachly) Freeman, '01, 
are located there also. Freeman is 
doing cotton breeding work. 

Ula Dow is teaching home econom-

incidentally to tap sugar maple trees 
to make maple sirup. 

Dolly (Ise) Chltty, f. s. 'OS-'OS, 
dated her letter in March at Irving 
and said that she and her husband, 
"Grit" Chitty, '05, were going to pull 
up stakes this summer and go west in 
search of a place that looked better 
than Kansas to them for a home. She 
admitted, however, that she didn't 
expect to find one. 

Helen (Bottomly) Lili's letter- 
head carried the information that she 
is raising purebred Ancona chickens 
and her partner, Percy E. Lill, '07, Is

Control of Inaecta Cooperatively in 
Townahlp or County Group* Ad- 
vised by EntomoIoKiat of 
Experiment Station 

The increasing amount of damage 
caused by chinch bugs last summer 
in the eastern half of Kansas and the 
large number now going into hiber- 
nation emphasizes the importance of 
immediate control measures, accord- 
ing to investigators at the agricultur- 
al college. Unless such measures 
are taken Kansas faces another out- 
break similar to that of 1910 and 
1912, they assert. The following 
description of control measures 
comes from J. W. McColloch, asso- 
ciate entomologist, Kansas agricul- 
tural experiment station. 

Chinch bugs can be successfully 
controlled two times during the year, 
at harvest time when the bugs are 
migrating from the small grain fields 
to the corn and sorghums, and dur- 
ing the winter when the bugs are in 
hibernation. On the ordinary farm 
control can be accomplished in a 
half day with practically no expense. 
At harvest time the expense is con- 
siderable and it requires about two 
weeks to complete. Experience has 
shown that when the winter cam- 
paign is conducted cooperatively 
wheat is protected from injury, mak- 
ing summer control measures un- 


Whenever the bugs have caused in- 
jury during the past' season 98 per 
cent of them will be found in autumn 
hibernating in the clump forming 
grasses such as bunch grass and blue- 
stem, in meadows, pastures, ravines, 
waste places, and roadsides. Where 
these bug infested areas have been 
systematically burned in November or 
December the chinch bug problem 
has been solved for the ensuing year. 

It is imperative for the farmer to 
find out whether his grasses are har- 
boring a dangerous number of bugs. 
If the grasses are found to do so he 
should burn all of the bug infested 
grasses without delay, securing the 
cooperation of his neighbors. If not 
destroyed, climatic conditions being 
favorable for them, the bugs will 
cause severe losses to wheat, corn, 
and sorghums next year. 


All clumpforming grasses found 
along roadsides, ravines, waste areas, 
meadows, and pastures should be 
burned over if it is found that they 
are harboring chinch bugs. This can 
be determined by parting the stems 
close to the crown of the plant when 
the bugs, if abundant, can be easily 
seen. When no bugs are found by 
this method a number of clumps 
should be dug up at random over 
the area and pulled to pieces over a 
large sheet of white paper or cloth. 
If there is an average of 10 or IB 
bugs to the clump the area should be 
burned over. 

Meadows that have been mowed 
late in the year and pastures that 
have been grazed close usually do not 
harbor many bugs and do not require 
burning. Blue grass pastures even 
though they may harbor some bugs 
should never be burned. Chinch 
bugs will also be found in a number 
of other situations such as corn 
shocks and stubble, but with ordin- 
ary winter conditions these will per- 
ish before spring. 


The best time to destroy the 
chinch bugs in hibernation Is in No- 
vember and December. Grass is drier 
at this time, therefore will burn clos- 
er to the ground thus killing a larger 
proportion of the bugs by fire and ex- 
posing the remainder to severe clim- 
atic conditions. Burning at this time 
results in the destruction of 985 out 
of every 1,000 bugs. 

When burning can not be done 
during the time mentioned, it should 
be carried out as soon as possible af- 
terwards. The mortality of bugs 
from late winter and early spring 
burning is much less than that from 

fall burning. Under the most (a 
vorable conditions it is seldom pos- 
sible to destroy more than 50 per 
cent of the bugs. This is due to the 
fact that growth has started and the 
plants do not burn as well, and also 
that the bugs that survive the fire 
are not exposed to the extremes of 
climatic conditions. 


Whenever possible the grass should 
be burned with a back fire,against 
the wind. Such a fire burns closer, 
holds the heat longer, and is easier to 
keep under control. A head fire 
sweeps over the ground rapidly, does 
not burn closely, and often gets out 
of bounds. 

Most effective results from fall 
burning will be had when It is car- 
ried out cooperatively over relatively 
large areas. The best results are to 
be had where the entire county en 
ters into the campaign. A campagin 
unit should not be less than a town 


Four iKKuea to Be Publialied Thia Tear 
"Evolution Number" To Come Out 
Thla Month 

A complete reorganization of the 
management of the Brown Bull, the 
college humor magazine, has just 
been completed and the first issue 
is scheduled to appear the last of 
the month. 

Heretofore the policies of the mag- 
azine have been handled directly by 
only three persons, an editor, assis- 
tant editor, and business manager. 
In accordance with the new plan, 
just completed, 10 people will be in 
immediate charge of the publication. 

The new organization consists of a 
Brown Bull board In addition to the 
regular editorial and business staff. 
The board consists of seven mem- 
bers; three student members of Sig- 
ma Delta Chi, men's journalism frat- 
ernity; three members of Theta Sig- 
ma Phi, the women's journalism 
fraternity; and the head of the journ- 
alism department. Officers of the 
board, elected last week, are, Harold 
Hobbs, president; Josephine Hemp- 
hill, secretary; and Edith Abbott, 
treasurer. The other student mem- 
bers of the board are, Dahy Barnett, 
Victor Blackledge, and Raymond 

A direct editorial staff, to be chos- 
en for each issue, was selected at 
the same meeting and consists of Al- 
bert Mead, editor, Frances Johnstone, 
assistant editor, and Alan Dalley, as- 
sistant business manager. The busi- 
ness manager, Victor Blackledge, 
was, according to a stipulation in the 
board's constitution, previously elect- 
ed in a meeting of Sigma Delta Chi. 
The president of the board will act 
in the capacity of managing editor 
and keep the copy coming in be- 
tween administrations of the issue 

Four magazines have been plan- 
ned for tills year, and, due to the 
stabilizing influence of the board, 
the publication will probably be put 
on a subscription basis. 

It has been definitely decided that 
the first issue will be called the 
"Evolution Number." Plans for it 
are already far along, and the editors 
are broadcasting a cry for humorous 
copy — jokes, poems, and sketches. 
John Post, who will be remembered 
for his excellent art work In last 
year's issues, has been chosen art 
editor and wishes all people who can 
cartoon or illustrate to get in touch 
with him immediately by mailing 
him samples of their work through 
the college postofflce. An especially 
large number of IllustratlonB and 
cartoons will be used this year. 

Elizal)eth Dickens to Chicago 

Elizabeth Dickens, '22, left Wed- 
nesday for Chicago, where she will 
be in the advertising sales office of 
the Household, a Capper publication. 
The office is being moved from To- 
peka to Chicago. Miss Dickens has 
been employed in the advertising de- 
partment of the Household since her 
graduation last spring. She has 
done exceptionally good work. 



K. S. A. C. Head Tallia to Club Women 

of Fifth DIatriet Federation 

Meeting Here 

A practical community, suited to 
the needs of daily life but at the 
same time ideal in its Intellectual, 
moral, and spiritual standards — this 
is the aim of the Kansas State Agri- 
cultural college. President W. M. Jar- 
dine told the Fifth District Federa- 
tion of Women's clubs in session here. 

After discussing the class and lab- 
oratory work of the institution and 
detailing the methods adopted for 
raising standards of scholarship. 
Doctor Jardine referred with pride 
to the literary societies, of which 
there are 10 with a membership of 
more than 700. This Is probably the 
largest literary society membership 
in any American college. He also 
mentioned the large number of hon- 
orary and professional aocieties in 
the student body. 

Doctor Jardine emphasized the re- 
ligious side of college life. Practical- 
ly all the students, he pointed out, 
are affiliated with some church, and 
40 per cent of them may be found 
in Bible classes each Sunday. 

The Y. M. and Y. W. C. A., Doctor 
Jardine showed, are important fact- 
ors in the life of the institution. Last 
year 842 students and 153 faculty 
members belonged to the Y. M. C. 
A. and 540 of the 900 women stu- 
dents belonged to the Y. W. C. A. 
The work of these organizations in 
helping the new students, conduct- 
ing special services, and giving vo- 
cational assistance was stressed. 

The president discussed also the 
work of the Students' Self Govern- 
ing association and commended its 
efforts for wholesome social life. He 
urged the importance of dormitories 
for women students and referred to 
the fact that the agricultural col- 
lege had relinquished its share in the 
previous dormitory project in order 
to get the system started in the state 
and prevent the scrapping of the en- 
tire plan. 



SUpa from Vaual Exalted Poaitton at 

The K. S. A. C. dairy judging team 
broke a very good habit at the Na- 
tional Dairy show, St. Paul, Minn., 
Tuesday, falling from its usual ex- 
alted station at the head of the list 
of student teams competing in the 
judging contest. The K. S. A. C. en- 
trants landed in eighteenth place 
this year, according to the word re- 
ceived at the office of Prof. J. B. 
Fitch, head of the dairy department 
at the college. For the past three 
years, the K. S. A. C. team has placed 
first at the National contest. 

The five teams which placed in the 
first five rankings at the Dairy con- 
gress at Waterloo, Iowa, week before 
last, placed thirteenth, fourteenth, 
sixteenth, seventeenth, and eigh- 
teenth at the National show. The 
Aggie team won the Waterloo con- 

James is quoted as saying, "as we 
get from six to nine cuttings a year, 
cutting a crop every 28 days in the 
growing season. This trip to western 
Washington has been a revelation to 
us, but I still like our home in the 
valley where the sun always shines 
and nature always smiles." 

Reuben Alleman is district repres- 
entative for the Aetna Life Insur- 
ance company Jimmy Brock talks 
as if he had land for sale. 


Brocks Visit the Allemans 

"It is a far cry from the Imperial 
valley in southern California, below 
the sea level, to the northwest tip 
of the United States," announced a 
story in the Port Angeles, (Wash.) 
Evening News, "but that is the trip 
made by James E. Brock, '08, El 
Centre, Cal., Marie (LaCrone) Brock, 
and their three children who visited 
a short time here with M. R. Alle- 
man, '09, and family after having 
made the trip overland by automo- 

"Mr. Brock is a pioneer of the 
Imperial valley, and one of the .first 
men there to raise dates. He is now 
in the general farming business."

home town paper as saying they 
had just completed bonding the 
county for three and a half million 
dollars to build hard-surfaced high-

Overflow from Gym. Now Taxed to Ca-* 

pactty, to Be Talcen Up by 

New Structure 

That the K. S. A. C. memorial sta- 
dium will come as a godsend to 
others than Aggie football, track, 
and baseball bleacherites is evidenced 
by the unprecedented interest shown 
in intramural athletics this year. The 
finicky ones whose esthetic taste was 
injured by a glimpse of the old 
"grandstand" will have to share 
their thanksgiving with the intra- 
mural enthusiasts who have been 
piled two deep in the gymnasium for 
the past two years. 

Already 22 teams have entered the 
Interorganization basketball tourna- 
ment and several more have signi- 
fied their intention of getting in the 
scrap. This number is larger than 
ia any previous year and even last 
season the question of handling the 
mob was a serious one. 

In 1921-22 the gym was in oper- 
ation from the time of the first gym 
class in the morning until 10 o'clock. 
Often the teams were forced to play 
through meal hours to get through 
their schedules. With an increased 
entry list this season, Mike Ahearn 
and Coach E. A. Knoth, director of 
intramural athletics, are in a quan- 
dary. "What to do? What to do?" 

There are many other sports be- 
sides basketball to contribute to the 
strain on the gym. The regular 
physical education classes take up a 
great deal of time and space during 
the day. Special classes, particular- 
ly, are being given a great deal of 
attention. Much interest has devel- 
oped in boxing, wrestling, swimming, 
tumbling, and tennis. The facilities 
for these games are pathetically in- 
adequate. There were 50 or 60 men 
for handball last year — one court 
was available. 

Indoor track work, basketball and 
spring baseball practice, are highly 
necessary evils that require space in 
the gym during their seasons. The 
varsity and freshman basketball 
teams occupy the main floor every 
evening during the winter and at 
that time the organization teams 
are crowded out. 

Another big space consumer is the 
military department. Its offices and 
storeroom are in one end of the gym. 
On Monday the building is almost en- 
tirely in its possession until 4 o'clock 
in the afternoon. 

When the stadium is completed 
the troubles will all pass away, pro- 
vided, of course, the growth of intra- 
murals before that time does not 
make it inadequate also. Accord- 
ing to plans the inside of the stadium 
will be equipped for indoor sports 
and games of all kinds. The first 
section will be entirely completed 
before work begins on the second. 

Wrestling and boxing rooms, 
handball courts, an indoor track and 
indoor tennis courts are a few of the 
many necessary conveniences that' 
will be provided in the stadium. 

"And then," says Mike, "with the 
increased space we feel that special 
phases of physical education can be 
given the time they deserve in a 
school of this size. And we will live 
in peace and quiet, and be happy 
ever after."

Inveatlgatora Find It Is Poaalble ia 

Central Kanaaa with Proper 

Seedbed Preparation 

That it is possible to Increase by 50 
per cent the yield of winter wheat In 
central Kansas through greater time- 
liness and efficiency of operation in 
preparing the seedbed for wheat 
has been pointed out in a recent bul- 
letin by the United States depart- 
ment of agriculture. The bulletin 
was prepared by John S. Cole, agri- 
culturist of the United States depart- 
ment of agriculture, and A. L. Hall- 
sted of the Hays Kansas Branch Ex- 
periment station. It gives the results 
of 14 years cooperative experimental 
work with winter wheat between the 
United States department of agricul- 
ture and the Kansas experiment sta- 

During this entire period wheat 
was grown continuously after wheat 
by several different methods of cul- 
tivation. There are at Hays 90 days 
between harvest and seeding. Late 
plowing 73 days after harvest and 17 
days before seeding has averaged 
10.5 bushels of wheat per acre. This 
is the lowest yielding method under 
trial, but is practically the same as 
the average yield for Ellis county for 
the same period. 

Early plowing 32 days after har- 
vest and 58 days before seeding has 
averaged 14.6 bushels per acre. 

Land listed early instead of plow- 
ing early has averaged 17.3 bushels. 

Land alternately fallowed and 
cropped to wheat has averaged 20.3 

The results of the experiments 
show the possibility of increasing the 
yield of wheat in that section of Kan- 

"Land that can be early plowed or 
listed," the bulletin states, "cannot 
be fallowed profitably, although the 
acre yield might be increased some- 
what. Land that cannot be prepared 
early could be fallowed more profit- 
ably than plowed late and seeded. If 
free from perennial weeds or gras- 
ses, it could still more profitably be 
seeded in the stubble with no prepara- 
tion unless perhaps a double disk- 

"The experiments do not indicate 
that a reduction of the proportion of 
wheat to other crops would necessar- 
ily result in an increased average 
yield per acre of wheat," the authors 
of the bulletin continue. "They do 
indicate that the present average 
yield per acre is not as high as it 
should be. The most fertile field for 
the control of yields is the 90-day 
period between harvest and seeding. 
The more completely this is made a 
cultivation period the higher will 
yields rise above the minimum at 
which they now rest." 

The bulletin may be obtained from

MSBnal Intended for Lesa Experienced 

Players — Flnt of Kind 


A football manual for high school 
coaches, the first of its liind ever 
published, has been written by Char- 
les W. Bachman, coach of football at 
Kansas State Agricultural college, 
and a few volumes have come from 
the printers for circulation. 

The manual teaches a modified 
form of the Notre Dame system, 
which Bachman learned as a player 
on the Notre Dame team In 1914, 
1915, and 1916. Bachman was 
named all- American guard in 1916 
and all-service center in 1918. 

"Several good books have been 
written on football," Bachman states 

"The Chinese have adopted Ameri- 
can surgery, but they still prefer 
their native medicines," said Doctor 
Code. "The conservatism and sup- 
ersition of these people make them 
slow to abandon medical customs, 
but gradually the barbaric methods 
of blistering and torturing the sick

In his preface, "but without exception 
they have been intended for the use 
of the coaches and players of college 
and university teams. It Is there- 
fore the purpose of this book to deal 
only in the fundamentals of football 
and to place in the hands of high 
school coaches and players a simple 
yet effective system of offense and 
defense. Simplicity has always been 
and always will be the foundation up- 
on which successful systems of foot- 
ball are played. This Is especially 
true of high school teams, where, 
because of the comparative youth of 
the personnel, the players lack the 
power to grasp and to execute com- 
plicated formations and plays." 

The manual contains 93 pages 
with chapters on the following sub- 
jects: equipment, conditions, injuries, 
mechanical devices, falling on the 
ball, tackling, blocking, punting, 
place kicking, drop kicking, the 
klckoff, forward passing, receiving 
of punts and passes, open field run- 
ning, how to play quarterback and

different clubs. 





All Get WoriiiM Sooner or liUtcr, Medi-

"Practically everyone In China suf- 
fers from parasites," said Dr. T. H. 
Coole recently in addressing the zo- 
ology and entomology seminar of K. 
S. A. C. on the subject of medical 
work in China. Doctor Coole Is a 
medical missionary on furlough. 

"We all get worms sooner or la- 
ter," Doctor Coole continued. "By 
prompt treatment the missionaries 
are usually soon cured, but the na- 1 
tive Chinese, dragging .themselves to 
the hospital over long, winding moun- j 
tain paths, require months to recup- 
erate after yielding hundreds of par- 
asitic worms. Malaria and other par- 
asitic diseases are very prevalent," 

During his furlough in America 
Doctor Coole holds a scholarship 
awarded by the Rockefeller founda- 
tion for making special medical stu- 
dies. At present he is studying the 
hookworm and other human para- 
sites with Dr. J. E. Ackert of the 
zoology department. Special studies 
in surgery and nervous diseases at 
Northwestern and Harvard univer- 
sity medical schools are on Doctor 
Coole's program later in the year.

poultry husbandry, is to be translated 
into the Chinese language. The ex-

The Chinese version will be published 
in that language by the college. Or-

Recognition of the work as an 
authoritative treatment of judging of 
productive qualities of fowls has been 
accorded from many quarters. Re-

and insistent, not only from this 
country but from England, France, 
Spain, Mexico, and China.

K. 8. A. C. Man Will Help Standardise 

Methods Used in Testing HlKh- 

way Materials 

Prof. C. H. Scholer of the college 
department of applied mechanics, K. 
S. A. C, has been honored by being 
elected to membership on committee 
D-4 of the American Society for 
Testing Materials. 

The American Society for Testing 
Materials is acknowledged by the 
engineering profession as the offic- 
ial body for the standardization of 
testing methods as they relate to ma- 
terials. To committee D-4 has been 
delegated the task of standardizing 
the methods used In the testing of 
highway materials. 

Professor Scholer's experience in 
connection with the road materials 
testing as carried on in the engineer- 
ing experiment station at K. S. A. C. 
for the Kansas Highway commission 
especially fits him for work on this 
committee. Undoubtedly many of 
the tests methods used in investigat- 
ing Kansas highway materials will 
now find their way Into national 




Many Have Employed Free Service in 
Last Two Years 

During the last two years farmers 
from 100 counties of Kansas sent 
samples of seed to the agronomy 
department of Kansas State Agricul- 
tural college to be tested for ger- 
mination or purity. The total num- 
ber of samples tested during the two- 
year period was 3,449. In the num- 
ber of samples submitted, Riley 
county led with 1,022. Other count- 
ies sending large numbers of samp- 
les were Shawnee, 292; Coffey, 270; 
Douglas, 209; and Jackson, 199. 
Chautauqua, Cheyenne, Grant, Ham- 
ilton, and Stanton were the only 
counties which failed to use the col- 
lege seed testing service. 

Germination tests show what per- 
cent of the seed may be expected 
to grow so that the farmer may In- 
crease or reduce accordingly the 
quantity of seed used per acre or 
may avoid entirely the use of seed 
having too low germinating power. 
Tests for purity show whether it 
contains the seeds of noxious weeds. 

K. S. A. C. seed testing service 
Is performed without charge. The 
work is done in the seed laboratory 
maintained at the college largely for 
instructional purposes. Much of the 
work is done by the students under 
the supervision of Mrs. E. P. Harling, 
seed analyst.

this fall on account of the drouth, 
has been to find something for 2,000 
head of cattle to eat. 

"If at any time you have some- 
thing that I can do to help out, let 
me know," Wunsch volunteers. "We

Totals 1,003 at Close of Summer 8ek*«l 

—15 Per Cent of Number in 

Last Two Classes 

More than one thousand agricul- 
tural graduates are recorded by Kan- 
sas State Agricultural college. When 
diplomas were given to the small 
group of men who remained through 
the 1922 summer school to complete 
the work of the agricultural cur- 
riculum the total number of agricul- 
tural graduates reached 1,003. Ot 
Ihls number, 161, or 15 per cent, 
have been graduated In the last two 
years, according to the biennial re- 
port recently submitted to President 
W. M. Jardlne by Dean F. D. Far- 

"It was not until 1900," Dean Far- 
rell said, "that the college gradmated 
a strictly agricultural class. Before 
that tlnle graduates were not classi- 
fied as they now are. The largest ot 
the 23 agricultural classes was grad- 
uated In 1916, when 117 degrees in 
agriculture were conferred. The 
smallest agricultural class In the 23- 
year period is that of 1901, which 
contained only eight members. One 
of the most famous classes is that 
of 1907, which numbered only 31 
but whose members have shown un- 
usual leadership and ability In ap- 
plied agriculture. In which several 
have become wealthy, and In scienti- 
fic investigation, teaching, and other 
forms of high class public service. 

"The 1,003 agricultural graduates 
are distributed throughout the United 
States and In many foreign coun- 
tries. They are successfully filling 
positions of responsibilty and agri- 
cultural leadership, on the farm and 
elsewhere, from Connecticut to Cal- 
ifornia, and from Alaska to China. 
Somewhat more than half the total 
number are In Kansas."

There is a certain publishing house 
that is tottering on the verge of 
bankruptcy. It has been tottering 
for some monhs, if not years. It has 
been as foolhardy in its methods as 
the old skinflint of whom it was said 
that he would not exactly go to hell 
for a nickel but he would keep fool- 
ing around the edge hunting for it 
till he fell in. What has kept the 
publishing house from dropping into 
the pit of bankruptcy? 

Its creditors have kept it going. 
They have bent every effort — they 
are still bending every effort — to get 
into the hands of this house some 
books that would sell well enough to 
pay a big profit — enough to pay off 
the indebtedness. They are doing 
everything in their power, spending 
money, time, influence, and effort to 
keep the publishing house from go- 
ing to the wall. If the house fails, 
they never will get their money, and 
unless they support it, failure is in- 

The example could be paralleled in 
many industries. Not only are money, 
time, and influence expended, but 
laws are passed, regulations are

supposed contribution to the public 

There is no other industry as Im- 
portant, none contributing as much 
to the public prosperity, as farming. 
Yet it is only after the most sedulous 
effort on the part of farmers, farm 
organizations, and statesmen and 
other leaders sympathetic with farm- 
ing that any progress is made toward 
relieving the serious condition in 
which farming frequently finds it- 
self. What is the reason? Why do 
not people leap to the relief of farm- 
ing, as they are prone to leap to the 
relief of other industries. 
Two reasons: 

The belief that farming is a safe 

The belief that the farmer Is a safe 

These beliefs are highly compli- 
mentary to farming and the farmer, 
but they do not improve farming con- 
ditions nor do they put any money 
into the farmer's pocket. What the 
farmer wants to know Is, Why should 
not my industry, recognized as safe 
and recognized to be in safe hands, 
receive at least the same considera- 
tion as industry not possessing these 

The farmer's question has justice 
behind it. It also has behind it tbe 
argument of good policy, which un- 
fortunately in these days often car- 
ries further than an argument from 
Justice. The farmer is justly en- 
titled to a square deal, based on the

Man Is Prostrate Before the Machine 

Th€ Freeman 

What we resent in the machine is not its power, for 
that is of its nature, but its evocation of imitative adapta- 
tions on the part of men and women. The machine has no 
vengance, no remorse, no flexibility — and no gaiety. If 
it runs 12 hours a day instead of six, it will produce just 
twice as many nails or patented corsets. If it stops, it 
will produce nothing, but it is not shocked at this viola- 
tion of all the best American tenets, for it is shocked at 
nothing, and feels nothing. What we do know is that no 
machine worthy of the name, that has been turning out 
pistons for an automobile, will suddenly begin to turn 
out jews'-harps. It can do only what is expected of it, 
and it can never disappoint any more than it can ever 
surprise. It is as regular in its habits as modern moral- 
ists seem never tired of assuring a credulous humanity 
that men and women should be. If it breaks down, one 
may be sure that the fact is due to wholly ascertainable 
and usually remedial causes. 

Now the whole trouble with our modern times is 
simply that man is prostrate before his own handiwork 
the machine. He is trying to make himself more and 
more like the elflcient mechanical engine, instead of at- 
tempting, and gloriously failing, to make the mechanical 
engine more like himself; or at least succeeding in the 
attempt to put this engine in the unimportant position it 
merits. It is actually considered something honorable 
and fine, instead of something to be reflected upon with 
melancholy, if a man can be relied upon unquestionably 
and unhesitatingly, if he is always punctual, if he never 
shocks one. One must, it seems, expect a person to do 
certain things, as confidently as one expects the morn- 
ing milk to be on time. The terrible thing is that this 
seems actually to be taking place. We have reached the 
point where psychologists do not hesitate to predict just 
what proportion out of 100,000 inhabitants will go mad 
at the age of 32, and the point where the mathematical 
degree of gullibility in the 65 per cent of our so-called 
normal population is a matter of everyday routine for 
advertising experts and publicity agents.

wrote on the examination for state 
certificates at Manhattan during the 
last week in August. All have re-

Professor Walters reports that 
there are over 250 students enrolled 
in the classes in freehand drawing 
and nearly another 100 in the high- 
er branches of graphic art. One of 
the classes, taught by Assistant Miss 
Bertha Kimball, has 87 members — 
more than twice the number it should 
have. The class in geometrical 
drawing was divided this week, and 
it is evident that several others will 
have to be divided before long.

In no previous year has there been 
such a large number of candidates 
for admission to the agricultural col- 
lege, who presented diplomas or cer- 
tificates of one kind or another. The 
city high schools and county high 
schools whose courses of study the 
college accepts as satisfactory, as 
well as a number of graded grammar 
schools whose graduates are admitted 
without examination, have never be- 
fore sent so many students here. The 
number of candidates who passed ex- 
aminations for county certificates 
was about double the usual number. 
There have been admitted this fall 
48 with high school diplomas, 9 
with grammar school diplomas, 79 
with county certificates, 9 with teach- 
ers' certificates, and 14 with cer- 
tificates from normal schools or col-

on certificates is about 160. 

The Illinois Agricultural associa- 
tion is purchasing potatoes for mem- 
bers of county farm bureaus in Illi- 
nois. Last year it handled 120,000 


A casual conversation brought 
about an increase of 25 per cent in 
the amount of livestock fed in nine 
northwestern Kansas counties. It 
was held between Dr. C. W. Mc- 
Campbell, bead of the animal hus- 
bandry department of the Kansas 
State Agricultural college at Man- 
hattan, and a farmer friend who lives 
near Goodland. 

The Goodland farmer told Doctor 
McCampbell that he was shipping 
corn from Kansas City to feed his 
livestock and was paying 88 cents a 
bushel for it. Little corn was avail- 
able locally although a large acreage 
had been planted. Freight added 
much to the cost of the corn. 

Doctor McCampbell knew that bar- 
ley could have been purchased in 
Goodland at that time for 65 cents a 
bushel and it struck him that his 
friend should have bought barley at 
home Instead of shipping corn from 
Kansas City. So he investigated. 

In a 20-year period barley averaged 
22 bushels an acre in the nine north- 
western Kansas counties, while the 
average yield of corn was only 8 bu- 
shels an acre. Yet 10 times as 
much corn as barley was planted. 
Doctor McCampbell then started 
feeding tests on corn and barley and 
was able to demonstrate that a pound 
of barley had practically the same 
feeding value as a pound of corn for 
cattle, hogs, or sheep. 

This information was passed out 
to farmers, and feeding in those 
counties it Is estimated has In- 
creased 25 per cent. The barley- 
corn proposition applies equally to 
northwestern Kansas. 

That's an example of the practical 
constructive service the animal 
husbandry department of the college 
renders to Kansas farmers all of the 
time. The self feeder for hogs, now 
so popular throughout the state, was 
first used at the Kansas State Agri- 
cultural college farm where its value 
was demonstrated to the satisfaction 
of everybody. 

Silos were put on the map in Kan- 
sas by the animal husbandry depart- 

Other important contributions to 
livestock knowledge have had to do 
with management, such as the time 
bulls should be turned with the cows 
in the spring and the danger of loss 
from breeding yearling heifers in- 
stead of waiting until they are 2 
years old. The calf crop always Is 
much smaller when bulls are turned 
with the cows early in the spring than 
if breeding is delayed until June or 

Forty thousand head of cattle were 
fed in Kansas last year under the 
direction and supervision of the de- 
partment. These were scattered in 
small lots throughout the state. 

In 1921-1922 the department re- 
ceived 11,021 inquiries from farmers 
and livestock growers in Kansas, ask- 
ing for speciflc informatioii on feed- 
ing, management, and other problems, 
Last year representatives of the de- 
partment attended 57 local fairs in 
50 different counties, judging live- 
stock and making talks on livestock 
problems. All expenses of these trips 
were paid by the fairs. — Ray Yarnell

Gridiron Game Eapidly Living Down Reputation for Being Mere 
Contest of Strength— Strategy Map Shows How Men Must Use 
Their Heads in Planning Attack— Coach Bachman Tells What 
To Do in Different Sections of Field— New Manual for Coaches 
Contains Much Information Interesting to Spectators.

Why does General Swart« ol the 
Aggies, always call a kick when his 
team gets possession of the ball with- 
in 10 yards of Its own goal line? And 
why do the Aggies save their smash- 
ing offense for the other end of the 
field? Why not smash out of danger 
and still keep possession of the ball 
'I Instead of kicking It? Sears, Stark, 

and Burton are reliable enough In 
a running attack. 

What is "offensive territory"? 

In short, what do you, Mr. Spec- 
tator, know about football strategy? 


You know probably as much as 
most players of the Missouri valley 
conference knew until quite recent 
years. Which was little or nothing. 
But a new day has dawned in foot- 
ball. High school players of today 
know as much as conference stars 
knew a decade ago. Football Is liv- 
ing down an unenviable reputation 
for being almost wholly a game of 
brawn. Brains count more than 
beef in the modern game. 

Answers to some of the foregoing 
questions along with many addition- 
al eye openers are contained in 
Charles Bachman's "Football Manual 
for High School Coaches," publica- 
tion notice of which is announced 
elsewhere in this number of The In- 


Probably most interesting to the 
average fan Is the section on stra- 
tegy which, with the "strategy map," 
Is reproduced herewith: 

"The shaded areas of this map 
show the side belts which are to be 
avoided. They are those Imaginary 

stretches of territory lying between 
the side lines and a line running par- 
allel to the sidelines and 10 yards In- 
side. If the baU is declared dead 
within five yards of the side lines it 
should be carried out of bounds on 
the next play. If It Is five yards or 
more from the sidelines, but Inside 
the side belt. It should be carried on 
the next play toward the center of 
the field. 

"The danger zone extends from 
our goal line to our 20 yard line. Be- 
cause of the proximity of our goal 
line it is always best to punt on eith- 
er the first or second down In this 
territory, If In position. The word 
position here means having posses- 
sion of the ball near the middle of 
the field, longitudinally speaking. In- 
side the 10 yard line, it Is best to 
punt on the first down and between 
the 10 and 20 yard lines on either 
first or second down. 

"In this zone we kick on second or 
third down, but hardly ever on the 
first unless a strong wind is blowing 
at our backs. Always punt on fourth 
down in the transitional zone, even 
if there is less than a foot to go. 
Punts should be high and straight 
down the field toward the safety. The 
distance from our own goal line to 
our opponent's 40 yard line is known 
as the kicking territory and our 
kicking is used as a defensive weap- 
on. Prom the 40 yard line to our 
opponents' goal line it Is used as an 
offensive weapon or as a means of 
scoring by either a place or drop 

"In the transitional zone one or 
two plays should be used for the pur- 
pose of trying out the opponents and 
locating the weak spots. Long

matlon should be used with the hope 
of getting a runner loose for a long 
gain. This is the territory for the 
punt formation — from our own goal 
line to the 40 or 46 yard line. In 
this territory play carefully and de- 
liberately and do not use passes or 
plays that are apt to be fumbled. 

"When the team hits the middle 
zone it should work into a shorter 
formation, either a shift or set form- 
ation with the last man in the form- 
ation six yar^s or less from the lines. 
In this territory the quarterback 
may start speeding up his offense 
and taking more chances. He now 
may use his passes and should not 
hesitate to do so when the opportun- 
ities are presented. He should al- 
ways kick on fourth down no matter 
how small the distance to go and 
either should kick out of bounds 
aiming at the 10 yard line or kick 
high. If you have an accurate pun- 
ter, place the ball out of bounds; 
otherwise kick extra high and have 
your linemen rush down the field 
surrounding the receiver and look- 
ing for a possible tumble. 

"Once inside the opponents' 40 
yard line the quarterback should 
speed up the play. He should know 
the weak spots by this time and 
should hit them hard and fast. 
Quick opening plays, offtackle drives, 
and passes should be used in this ter- 
ritory. Where the running attack is 
working well stay with it and do not 
use passes. When the running plays 
are stopped, it is well to try a pass 
or trick play, always reserving the 
third down for either a drop or place 
kick, or a run to position for either 
of these kicks. Against a stronger 
team it is best to place or drop kick 
on the third down. 

"Inside the scoring zone the quar- 
terback should drive his team hard 
to score as quickly as possible, be- 
cause the closer he gets to his oppon- 
ents' goal line the more concentrated 
the defense and the more limited the 
territory into which he can pass. Off- 
tackle drives, quick opening plays, 
crisscrosses, or short passes should 
be used in this territory. Find the 
play that is working and stay with it. 
Keep to the center of the field so that 
a drop or place kick may be tried on 
a third or fourth down. 


"Passes as a general rule should 
not be used in this territory except 
on a fourth down or if one of the op- 
ponents' backfield men is out of 
position. Players should be careful 
to remain on side or to avoid missing 
signals, or otherwise delay or hinder 
the progress of plays. In this zone 
the offensive team may lose the ball 
on downs, where it needs a touch- 
down to even the score or to win, or 
where, with the score even, it has 
no one who can place or drop kick. 

"If the quarterback has a kicker 
superior to the one of the opponents' 
team, be should use him freely, punt- 
ing on first downs until his team 
reaches the center of the field. But 
If he has an inferior kicker the quar- 
terback should make up the differ- 
ence in punting by rushing the ball 
before punting. Where the kicking 
is even the kick should be used for 
defensive purposes. 


"With a cross wind blowing the 
quarterback should run his first play 
for position, or to the windward side 
of the field, and when he kicks it 
should be toward the leeward so the 
opponents will have to waste a play 
to get back toward the windward 
side. When playing against the 
wind delay the kick until fourth 
down and slow your plays, saving 
your offensive strength until you 
change goals. When playing with a 
wet slippery ball the ball should be 
kept out of the defensive territory 
by a first down punt, watching for 
the fumbles which are apt to follow. 

"When opposed to a team that is 
superior in every department of the 
game it is best to use 'stalling' tactics 
to keep the ball away from the op- 
ponents. With the score in your fa- 
vor at the beginning of the second 

half it is best to play for time, by 
calling the signals slowly, and by lin- 
ing up deliberately. However, the 
play should be driven hard and fast 
when the ball is snapped. With the 
score in your opponents favor In the 
second half, open up with all the of- 
fense you have — throw all rules of 
football to the winds — try anything 
for a score, from any and all posi- 
tions on the field. 


"The quarterback on offense 
should carefully study his opponents, 
their ability to handle punts, their 
strong and weak men, and other bits 
of information that will aid him In 
calling his plays. His teammates 
should help him whenever possible, 
especially when time is out, by giv- 
ing him such Information as they 
may have. 

"When the opponents have the ball 
inside their own territory the quar- 
terback should take his position at 
the extreme range of the kicker from 
the line of scrimmage. 

"He should always know the down 
and the distance to go. When the 
ball is put in play he comes up on a 
trot either to make the tackle if the 
runner gets loose or to help cover 
passes. If a runner gets loose the 
quarterback should immediately place 
himself on the flank of the runner 
and force him to the side lines. 

"While on defence the quarter- 
back should carefully study his own 
team as well as that of his opponents 
and should plan his attack so that 
he will have a definite idea of what 
plays he will work when he gets pos- 
session of the ball."

WlIdCMia Play In Late Seaaoa Form 

Asalnat Viaitora — Ninety Piece Band, 

Fall Student Attendance, and 

Freakman Rootera Featnrea 

Somebody has been teeding the 
Aggie Wildcats raw meat. From the 
way they tore Into the Washburn 
warriors last Saturday, one would 
Judge that several teams in the Mis- 
souri valley conference are likely to 
get severely bruised before Thanks- 
giving comes. The count in the fray 
Saturday was 47 for the Aggies and 
nothing for Washburn, and both 
teams earned all they got. 

It already looks as if the Aggie 
graduates and former students who 
don't come home on Homecoming 
day, October 28, will never cease 
kicking themselves when they hear 
the news. If they come to Manhattan 
on that date, when the Aggies play 
K. U., they will also return on No- 
vember 30 to behold the mystifica- 
tion of Texas Christian university. 


The followers of Aggie sports have 
already discovered that the Wildcat 
team is practically twins this year — 
at least there are two of them. The 
bunch of so-called second string men 
that Bachman sent in about the mid- 
dle of the second quarter and kept in 
until the last session forgot they were 
merely being tried out. They wal- 
loped Washburn as completely as did 
the regulars and had the press box 
scorers gasping for breath all the 

The Washburn game was all that 
could be desired in the first game, 
and much more than was expected. 
For the first time in history every 
college student was present. The 
new activity fee has proved itself suc- 
cessful already. Everybody was at 
the game and everybody got his mon- 
ey's worth. Mike Abearn counted 


The Aggie band appeared at 2:65 
and 90 musicians started things by a 
march around the gridiron. The Ag- 
gie freshmen on the east bleachers 
had all the enthusiasm and pep that 
could be desired. The one unit of 
the new stadium already completed 
and the unit under construction made 
a pleasing prophecy for future Ag- 
gie athletics. 

And the Aggie team had every- 
thing, and everything seemed to 
work. Line plunges, oft tackle 
swings and runs, and a whole bag 
full of forward passes kept the Wash- 
burn players watching and praying 
throughout. The Wildcats already 
have much of the sparkle of late sea- 
son form. Their defense was 100 per 
cent stone wall and their offense at 
times ran a temperature of 105. Wit- 
ness the penalty figures. 


Washburn was unable to demon- 
strate whether she has a good team 
or not. Her offense was smothered 
completely and her defense, of course, 
could not show much for itself. The 
two Aggie lines that were used, more 
than satisfied the fans. Swartz, Bur- 
ton, Stark, and Sears, the regular 
backfield, had so little trouble that 
they got to view about half the game 
from the side lines. The work of 
Sebring, Weber, Munn, and Doolan 
at end made them all look like reg- 
ulars. Brown, Brandley, and Axline 
at halt and Portnelr at full performed 
so creditably that it is going to be 
hard telling who is regular and who 

Here are the figures and facts of 
the game for those who are suspic- 
ious of generalizations. 

The Aggies scored one touchdown 
in the first quarter, two in the sec- 
ond, two in the third and two of the 
five touchdowns were the result of 
completed forward passes — Swartz to 
Sebring and Axline to Munn. Sears 
scored three. Stark one and Portneir 
one on rushes. Two of the seven Ag- 
gie attempts at the try for point 
failed. Sears scored one on a play 

through the line. Sebring kicked 
three place kicks and Brown booted 
one place kick. Both the failures at 
the try for point were attempts at 
place kicks.

torn ligaments, which will keep him 
out two weeks. Clements, a back 
field man who has been on the hos- 
pital list for the last 10 days, and 
Brandley are probably candidates for 
right halfback to replace Burton 
against the Pikers. Both Brandley 
and Clements are substitutes of last 
year but neither is a letter man. 

Scout "Ted" Curtiss, who observed 
the Washington-Rolla game in which 
the Pikers won 14-6, reported pos- 
sible concealed strength on the part 
of the Pikers. Due to the muddy 
field neither team was able to show 
anything. The Aggie mentors figure 
that Washington was saving her 
strength for the Aggie game, recall- 
ing a 21-0 drubbing at Manhattan 
last year. 

While the Pikers were playing 
Rolla, Missouri conference team, to 
a one touchdown defeat Saturday, the 
Aggies were swamping Washburn, 
one of the strongest teams in the Kan- 
sas conference, under a 47-0 score. 
Whether the comparison justifies the 
obvious conclusion that Washington 
is considerably weaker than the Ag- 
gies is problematical. Possibly the 
Aggies are a bit chesty and the Pik- 
ers a bit determined as a result of 
last Saturday's experience, which 
ought to even things up. 

The Aggies have good reason to 
be chesty. Their early season form 
was the best evidence in a season 
opener on Abeam field for many 
years. The forward pass worked in 
midseason form. All four of the 
ends, two quarterbacks, and four 
halfbacks used in the game employed 
it with good results. The Wildcats 
kept Washburn from completing a 
single first down. Washburn hardly 
gave the Aggies a test. 

Much doubt still remains astowhat 
impression Bachman's charges will 
make upon a team more nearly equal 
in football brains and ability. They 
ran down the Ichabods ruthlessly, 
with splendid self confidence and fin- 
ish. Minus their Saturday tendency 
to foul and fumble, the Aggies will 
present a real danger to the laurels 
of any one of the conference teams 
which they will meet between now 
and Thanksgiving.

alkali-resistant crops grown In the

Bmployed in Reacarch Laboratorlea of 
Flelachmann Company, New York, 
at Salary More than Doable Col- 
lege Par 

Prof. L. A. Fitz, head of the de- 
partment of milling industry at Kan- 
sas State Agricultural college, has 
been granted a leave of absense for 
one year to engage in commercial 
work. Professor Fitz is now em- 
ployed in the research laboratories 
of the Fleischmann company in New 
York City. 

It is not definitely known whether 


he will return to the college after 
his year's leave of absence expires. 
As the salary he receives in his pres- 
ent work is more than double what 
he was paid here, there is same 
doubt as to whether he will return 
if he finds conditions favorable for 
his research work in the Fleischmann 
laboratories. The Fltzes are at home 
at 35 Jackson street. New Rochelle, 
New York. The laboratory where 
Professor Fitz works is at 158th 
street and Mott avenue. New York 


During Professor Fitz's absence. 
Associate Professor P. L. Mann will 
be acting head of the department of 
milling industry. Professor Mann 
was graduated at K. S. A. C. in 1918. 
Subsequently he had extensive ex- 
perience in milling investigations in 
the department of agriculture at 
Washington, before returning to K. S. 
A. C. in September 1921. 

Professor Fitz spent four years In 
the service of the office of cereal In- 
vestigations of the United States de- 
partment of agriculture following 
graduation from K. S. A. C. with 
the class of 1902. During this per- 
iod he carried on experimental work 
in the production of cereals and be- 
came unusually well grounded in the 
agronomic phases of the cereal in- 


For four years following 1906 he 
was in the employ of the federal of- 
fice of grain standardization, where 
he conducted pioneer work in cereal 
chemistry as a part of the activities 
of the government in the establish- 

ment of what are now the federal 
grain standards. In this same work 
Professor Fitz also did extensive ex- 
perimenting in milling and baking to 
secure information necessary in the 
establishment of the grain grades. 

Returning to the college in 1910 
as head of the department of milling 
Industry, Professor Fitz brought to 
the institution a rich experience with 
cereals and milling. He has been 
in charge of the department of mill- 
ing industry continuously since 1910 
and has made the department known 
thronghout the United States for the 
excellence of its service in the train- 
ing of students and the conduct of 
milling investigations. 

For several years, in addition to 
his responsibilities in the department, 
he has represented the director of 
the experiment station in the admini- 
stration of state laws providing for 
the control of the sale of commercial 
feeding-stuffs and livestock remedies.

key produced a yield of 10 bushels 
while Kanred produced slightly over 
nine. In all other cases, however, 
Kanred exceeded the yield of Turkey 
in northeastern Kansas. 

Much of the opposition to Kanred 
wheat is, in my opinion, due to a 
mistaken idea as to its origin. Many 
think Kanred is a soft wheat or a 
hybrid. Many think that it is a dif- 
ferent type of wheat from Turkey. 
Such is not the case. Kanred is as tru- 
ly a Turkey wheat as is the old Red 
Turkey or the Kharkof variety which 
have been grown so many years in 
Kansas. In speaking of Turkey, we 
usually use the name to refer to the 
old importations of wheat that origin- 
ally came from Russia, and which 
later were improved at this institu- 
tion, and other similar institutions 
in the hard wheat section of the 
United States. It should be under- 
stood, therefore, that in Kanred we 
have a strain of Turkey which dif- 
fers from the old Turkey in two or 
three important respects. 


It is more resistant to certain 
strains of black stem rust and to 
orange leaf rust than the old strains 
of Turkey. It has been in our ob- 
servation somewhat more winter 
hardy than the old types of Turkey 
wheat. It has matured on the aver- 
age slightly earlier than the old 
strains of Turkey wheat. 

These characteristics have enabled 
it on the average to withstand ad- 
verse conditions and to yield some- 
what more grain to the acre. In 
other essential respects, there is no 
difference between Kanred and the 
old strains of Turkey wheat. It has, 
so far as we can determine, the same 
color, the same ability to produce 
dark, hard wheat, the same tendency 
to produce yellow-berry when planted 
under humid conditions, and the same 
tendency to lodge when the weather 
is wet. 

Some farmers have thought that 
there was a tendency for Kanred to 
produce a little larger leaf area than 
the older strains of Turkey wheat. 
This may be the case, but the differ- 
ence in this respect is not very 

I have mentioned these things to 

endeavor to show you that when w« 
speak of Turkey wheat we speak of 
a group rather than an indlvldoal 
variety. The term Turkey, howeTor, 
has been used so long to designate 
the earlier importations that we hare 
come to think of and call all ot 
these earlier importations Turkey. 
At this institution, however, in speak- 
ing of Turkey we usually refer to a 
selection that was made many years 
ago at this institution. It is with 
this particular strain, which has been 
our highest, yielding strain of old 
Turkey wheat, that Kanred has been 
compared at this institution and in 
variety tests with farmers In differ- 
ent sections of the state. 

Based upon, all of the evidence 
that we have on hand extending over 
a period of 12 years, we feel perfectly 
safe in stating that Kanred is a bet- 
ter variety of wheat than the old 
strains of Turkey for planting, not 
only in your section of Kansas, but 
throughout the hard wheat section 
of Kansas as well. 

Milling results extending over 12 
years of time at this institution and 
similar results extending over five 
years of time by the U. S. department 
of agriculture show that there is 
comparatively little difference in the 
milling value of Kanred or Turkey 
wheat or in the quality of the flour 
or bread produced from these var- 
ieties. I feel confident that neither 
the farmers of Kansas nor the mill- 
ers or grain men of this state need 
fear Kanred from the standpoint of 
its milling or baking value. Since 
it is a Turkey wheat, there is little 
reason to suspect that it will mill 
differently than other varieties of 
the Turkey type. 

Alumni in Stadium Line-up 

"The alumni association took a 
very practical and reasonable stand 
on the stadium question last year," 
believes A. E. Oman, '00, Bozeman, 
Mont., " and that should redound 
to increased interest and enthusiasm 
on the proposed drive this fall. 

"With the splendid beginning 
made by the college and Manhattan 
folks, the alumni army should fall 
in line 'to a man'."

Marked by Sacceaa 

Thomas J. Talbert, since December, 
1919, superintendent of institutes 
and extension schools In Kansas 
State Agricultural college, has re- 
signed his position to accept the ap- 
pointment of professor and head of 



Estimates varying from 10,000 to 
20,000 are placed on the probable at- 
tendance at the Homecoming game 
between the Kansas Aggies and K. 
U. here Saturday afternoon, Octo- 
ber 28. The total seating capacity on 
Ahearn field will be not more than 
6,500. Four thousand of these will 
be reserved. Seats are now on sale 

Mike Ahearn, athletic director, be- 
lieves that the crowd will not ex- 
ceed 10,000. Asked what arrange- 
ment would be made for the over- 
flow, Ahearn replied, "I have stopped 
worrying about that. We will sim- 
ply do the best we can." 

Three units of the section of the 
memorial stadium now under con- 
struction will be completed for the 
game. A fourth unit for which 
forms will be up, can be used. These 
units will take care of about 2,800 
persons. The old grandstand and 
bleachers will accommodate 3.700. 

C. J. Medlln, '20, Kansas represen- 
tative of the Burger Engraving com- 
pany, who has been calling upon 
high schools and colleges through- 
out the state this fall, believes that 
not less than 20,000 persons will be 
here to see the game, If the roads 
are In good condition and the 
weather fair. A number of high 
schools and colleges of Kansas 
are planning upon sending their 
coaches and teams to see the Ag- 
gies and the Jayhawks in action. 
Medlln figures that the student 
body and Manhattan alone will 
turn out more than 6,000 fans. He 
says every Aggie he has talked to 
this fall plans to see the game. 

Medlln declares that they all

university. Professor Talbert went 
to his new post at the beginning of 
the present school year. 

The three years during which he 
was connected with K. S. A. C. 
marked great Improvement in the 
branches of extension activities 
which Professor Talbert directed. He 
managed the successful college 
Farm and Home weeks of 1920 and 
1921. While connected with the 
college he wrote two bulletins which 
have attracted nationwide attention. 
They are "The Extension Worker's 
Code" and "Extension Salesman- 


Talbert's experience previous to 
his entering college, as a country 
school teacher and as a rural free de- 
livery driver, added to his knowledge 
of rural life attained during a child- 
hood spent on a Missouri farm, gave 
him an ideal background as an ag- 
ricultural educator. He worked his 
way through the Missouri college of 
agriculture, receiving his bachelor's 
degree in 1913. On account of the 
excellence of his scholarship he was 
appointed student assistant in horti- 
culture, which position he held dur- 
ing the last two years of his under- 
graduate career. 

Immediately after his graduation 
he was appointed assistant in ento- 
mology at the college of agriculture 
and deputy state nursery inspector. 
He was the first man to administer 
the law requiring the inspection of 
nursery stock. He succeeded in the 
task, which required infinite tact, 
but left the service at the end of a 
year in the fall of 1914 to become 
extension entomologist in Kansas 
State Agricultural college. 


He was called to Missouri to be- 
come extension entomologist in that 
state in the fall of 1915. With Colum-

to pursue graduate work which he 
completed for a master's degree ma-

poultry side of it. 

Managing Editor of Kanaaa City Kan-

Prcaa Subject to Initiative, 

Referendum, Recall 

Carl F. White, managing editor of 
the Kansas City Kansan, addressed 
a number of classes in industrial 
journalism Monday and Tuesday. He 
spoke to the entire department on 
the subject of "The Newspaper of 
Today" Monday afternoon. Mr. 
White recited the story of the Kan- 
san which was founded in 1921. 

"The newspaper of today is what it 
always has been — a mirror of the life, 
of the civilization that surrounds It," 
Mr. White declared. "Should you, 
upon looking into a mirror, be dis- 
pleased with the reflection there, you 
would change your face — would you 
not ? — or at least your expression. You 
wouldn't fly into a rage and smash 
the mirror. It was no fault of the 
mirror, that that which was reflected 
from its polished surface was dis- 
pleasing to you. So it is when a 
community looks upon the news page 
or editorial page of a newspaper. If 
it does not like what it sees It should 
change the community. In the final 
analysis the newspaper reflects the 

"The newspaper is the voice of 
the crowd. What language is to the 
individual, the printed newspaper Is 
to the multitude. Without language 
men could not warn each other, tell 
what they had seen and thought. 
Without the written word, knowledge 
could not be handed down from one 
generation to another. 

"The newspaper is the voice of the 
crowd for the day. History Is the 
voice of the people for the centuries. 
"There are several kinds of news- 
papers, two of which are important. 
One is well illustrated by the three 
little monkeys that you see in Chin- 
ese stores. One monkey has his 
hands on his mouth. He will speak 
no evil. Another, with his eyes cov- 
ered, will see no evil. The third, 
holding his hands on his ears, will 
hear no evil. Those virtuous mon- 
key newspapers that neither speak, 
see, nor hear evil things are highly 
appreciated by great corporations 
and others that are diligently ex- 
ploiting all the people all the time. 
And those little journalistic mon- 
keys get their reward in some form, 
although they usually are not suc- 
cessful newspapers. 


"Then there is another kind of 
neswpaper — the real newspaper. Such 
a newspaper keeps its eyes open to 
see what is evil, keeps Its ears open 
to hear it, and does not hesitate to 
open its mouth to tell it that all the 
people may know. 

"The newspaper alone makes pos- 
sible democratic government on a 
wide scale. One of the wisest Greeks 
said that no nation could preserve 
self government if it grew so big that 
the citizens could no longer meet In 
the public square to discuss public 
matter's. Matters of public interest 
then were publicly discussed, the 
citizens listening, forming their 
opinions and acting upon them. 


"The daily newspaper is today 
what the public square was to an- 
cient Greeks. All the hundred mil- 
lions of Americans able to read meet 
every morning in the columns of the 
newspaper. They see at the same 
time the same news; they know what

of affairs and in office have said and 

"The public of this country could 
not meet in a public square, but 
through the newspapers, having all 
the facts before them at the same 
hour every morning and every eve- 
ning, they are able to think as a 
unit; and despite our bigness that 
spreads from ocean to ocean they 
are able to govern themselves. 


"The business of the newspaper is 
to tell the news as it happens, not as 
a few want it told, to protect the 
public interest, which means some- 
times interfering with private plans. 
If a newspaper is not successful It 
dies and is nothing. If it Is success- 
ful, it often makes its owner rich. 
And when a man becomes rich, as a 
rule, the world gradually changes, 
takes on a softer hue, seems to him 
a decent, respectable sort of place, 
not needing much change &r Im- 

"The most important thing that 
a newspaper could possibly do is 
something that no newspaper does 
thoroughly, or even approximately. 
Every newspaper should be syste- 
matically and persistently an edu- 
cating power. Better than any oth- 
er agency on earth, the newspaper is 
fitted to distribute knowledge. The 
newspaper can distribute knowledge 
as the rain distributes water — in 
small drops, easily absorbed. 


"Newspapers, in the final analysis, 
are what the people make them. They 
are subject at all times to the initia- 
tive, referendum, and recall. Any 
newspaper can be eliminated in 24 
hours If the people wish It. It they 
didn't buy the paper, that would set- 
tle it. Any newspaper can be told 
Immediately, by its circulation bar- 
ometer, that it is or is not pleasing to 
the public.

Dean Farrell Regarda It aa Regrettable 

Fact That Large Proportion of Men 

Thna Employed Look at Poaltlon 

aa Mere St^epplng Stone 

That an unfortunate tendency to 
regard the teaching profession mere- 
ly as a stepping stone exists among 
many agricultural graduates of K. 
S. A. C, is indicated by the results of 
an investigation recently reported by 
the division of agriculture, accord- 
ing to Dean F. D. Farrell. 

The investigation was made among 
the members of the 1921 and 1922 
graduating classes in agriculture. 
About 35 per cent of the class of 
1921 obtained positions as agricul- 
tural teachers in high schools. But 
at the time of their graduation only 
3 per cent expect to continue In 
the teaching profession for as long 
as five years. 

A similar situation is found among 
the class of 1922. About 40 per cent 
of that class are teaching at present, 
but only 14 per cent of them expect 
to be teaching five years from now. 


"Most of these graduates plan to 
become farmers," Dean Farrell com- 
mented. "It Is true that the country 
cannot have too many agricultural 
graduates on the farms. High class 
leadership on the farm is as impor- 
tant and as rare as capable agricul- 
tural leadership elsewhere. 

"But as the great majority of high 
school students who become farm- 
ers get no formal training beyond 
the high school, the need for farm 
leadership emphasizes the impor- 
tance of having the best possible ag- 
ricultural teaching in the high 


"It is regrettable that so many ag- 
ricultural graduates regard teaching 
as a temporary expedient. Gradu- 
ates who enter the profession of ag- 
ricultural teaching on a temporary 
basis are not as likely to do high 
class work as they would be if they 
planned definitely to make a career 
of teaching. 

"The teaching profession is cer- 
tainly one of the most important oc- 
cupations and there is no field in 
which it is more important than it is 
in agriculture. Public appreciation 
of this fact is growing. This is 
shown by the good salaries now paid 
to young teachers. The salaries paid 
to members of the agricultural grad- 
uates of 1922 who are teaching ag- 
riculture range from $1,800 to $2,700 
a year. It is also shown by recent 
improvements in high school build- 
ings and other teaching facilities. • 

"Good teaching Is perhaps the 
greatest factor In the development 
of public appreciation. It is desir- 
able from every standpoint that an 
increasing number of superior agri- 
cultural graduates should enter the 
teaching profession and plan to 
make it a career." 



The United States census of 1920 
says "Kansas has 111,055 automo- 
biles and 165,286 farms; Mlsaouri 
86,229 automobiles and 263,004 
farms; and Oklahoma 52,063 auto-

At certain times of the year, the 
farmer has leisure in which to read. 
He uses that leisure for reading. He 
reads newspapers, farm journals, 

Unfortunately he finds few books 
especially adapted to his Interests 
and needs. Not that farmers need a 
library wholly different from the 
library that appeals to city people. 
Good fiction, good poetry, are for 
country and city alike. 

There is, however, the field of so- 
called serious literature, the de- 
mand for which is constantly grow- 
ing. In this field, where interests 
are likely to be somewhat highly 
specialized, farmers find relatively 
little for them. There are books on 
crops, on soils, on livestock — some 
of them adapted to the needs and 
tastes of the practical farmer, some 
of them not. 

But in any event it is not in these 
subjects that the farmer particularly 
wants information; he already knows 
much of what appears in books. He 
does want more Information on mat- 
ters connected with economics, so- 
ciology, and politics as applied to ag- 
riculture and rural life. Generally 
speaking, he cannot find them. The 
books on such subjects are for the 
most part college textbooks, intended 
for classroom use. They are not 
adapted to the farmer. 

An opportunity would seem to be 
open to some publishing house with 
sufflcient vision to undertake this 
largely untouched field. It would 
probably not result in any best sel- 
lers, but it would produce works for 
which there would be a steady de- 
mand. Moreover, it would be per- 
forming a distinct service to agricul- 
ture and rural life.

capacity to run a newspaper. Why, 
we thought everybody knew how to 
run a newspaper. Most people think 
that running a newspaper is just the 
easiest thing; they firmly believe that 
they could do a much better job of it 
than i<! being done as matters are ar-

The Farmer's Credit Needs 

J. R. Howard, PrtsidtHl of the Amtrieam Farm Bureau Federation 

We farmers are concerned immediately with the pay- 
ment of our present obligations. We are hopeful that 
prices will mend and agricultural conditions improve so 
that we may meet them. Many of us are sure that we 
will have to refund our loans and probably increase the 
principal. These facts are vital to the whole cowntry, 
because agriculture is the great basic industry of the 

Within the circle of my own community I can point 
out a score of land owners who began life either as 
hired laborers or tenants. When they began to accum- 
ulate, the desire for land ownership possessed them. 
Soon they became land owners. This was made pos- 
sible through that form of credit known as real estate 

I am interested that the good tenant farmer who 
aspires to be a land owner be granted a credit on such 
terms as will enable him not only to own his farm but 
to improve its fertility from year to year and to take his 
proper place in community building and life. For this 
reason I believe the amortized loan to be ideal. It stim- 
ulates in the progessive tenant, or the young prospective 
farmer, a home ownership desire and a confidence in 
land possession through the longer period of credit and 
certainty of continuance, which the shorter loan does 
not afford. This permanence and assurance naturallly 
brings with it the hope and inducement for both farm 
improvement and community building. 

The farmer is not only the most essential and the 
largest factor in economic life but from the standpoint 
of Investment he is the safest factor. Money wisely in- 
vested in land or in production of the products of land 
is less hazarded than in manufacturing, or merchandis- 
ing, or commerce and it is not right that because a farm- 
er borrows in small amounts or because his turnover is 
but once a year that he be charged higher rates than 
most other industries. Yet, this is true and agricultural 
credit will continue to be a burning issue until some re- 
lief is found. 

Mrs. Kedzie writes from Peoria, 
where she is professor of domestic 
science in the Bradley Polytechnic 
institute, that she teaches but 12 
hours per week. When at Manhattan 
she often had to take care of classes 
fully 30 hours.

The Spirit passeth by, 

The glories fade. 
That but an hour since 

Thy pleasure made. 
The golden blossom trained 

About thy bower, 
That decked the dazzling noon 

With many a flower. 
Is wilted now, and wan 

Within the shade; 
"The spirit passeth by, 

The glories fade!" 

The noon will not return. 

The day is dead: 
The blossom of the hour " 

Is vanished. 
Why wander idly down 

The empty lane, 
And press from every thorn 

Its drop of pain. 
And stretch thy hands to keep 

The parting scene, 
Marring the happy grace 

Of what hath been? 

Let go the gentle touch 

Of dying things, 
Nor bid the bird repeat 

The song it sings. 
For nothing lives again! 

But Life, to thee 
The hourly child of Life, 

For this shall be 
More purely worshipped, 

More meek obeyed — 
"The spirit passeth by. 

And glories fade!" 

From shavings and sawdust com- 
bined with suitable binders, there Is 
now being made a new reconstructed 
wood material that has many ad- 
vantages over ordinary wood, and is 
the result of research made by Prof. 
George Kemmerer, of the chemistry 
department of the University of Wis- 
consin. Professor Kemmerer's new 
process has been used commercially 
since last winter, and has proved 
better than wood for certain pur- 

The sawdust is mixed with a new 
binding material which Professor 
Kemmerer discovered and perfected, 
is put Into a mold, and then sub- 
jected to pressure, of from 500 to 
1,000 pounds per square inch. The 
resulting product is much tougher 
and harder than ordinary wood, does 
not split, and is practically imper- 
vious to water. This reconstructed 
wood takes finishes, such as varnish 
and enamels, well. 

When we find ourselves entertain- 
ing an opinion about the basis of 
which there is a quality of feeling 
which tells us that to inquire Into it 
would be absurd, obviously unneces- 
sary, unprofitable, undesirable, bad 
form, or wicked, we may know that 
that opinion is a nonrational one, and 
probably, therefore, founded upon 
Inadequate evidence. — William Trot- 
ter in "Instincts of the Herd." 

Good sense is, of all things among 
men, the most equally distributed; 
for everyone thinks himself so 
abundantly provided with It, that 
even those who are the most difficult 
to satisfy In everything else do not 
usually desire a larger measure of 
this quality than they already pos- 
sess. — Descartes. 

The farmer is no more a fortune 
hunter, but one of the most stable 
economic and social factors of the na- 
tion. This he will continue to be on 
one condition — he must have an In- 
come which will enable him to live as 
well as his fellow man, to educate his 
family, to lay aside a competence, 
and to receive due recognition In all 
the affairs of life. — J. R. Howard. 

The casual writing of the college

The stadium is in the air. Three 
units of the portion under construc- 
tion will be fixed there permanent- 
ly by Homecoming day. There 
should be more, for the demand for 
seats far exceeds the number avail- 
able in the stadium. A record crowd 
is coming. 

All of which shows the need for 
the structure and how quickly the 
portion financed will be overrun 
when completed. The progress K. 
S. A. C. has made in athletics is 
appreciated. Persons who a few 
years ago never spoke of Aggies and 
athletics in the same breath, now 
are coming miles to see the Wildcats 
meet worthy opponents. Which Just- 
ifies the purpose of the stadium 
builders to build big. 

Thus far, all the money contribu- 
ted and promised for the stadium 
has been by students, faculty and 
Manhattan townspeople. Numerous 
alumni have offered contributions 
but they have been asked to hold 
their money until the alumni as a 
unit are ready to respond. The time 
is nearly here; hence, stadium and 
stadium talk are In the air on the 
Aggie campus.

C. campus."

writes, "that can compare with ours 
in size and beauty."

its fall color, but autumn winds 
make merry with the leaves and na- 
ture's efforts to decorate for Home- 
coming may be fruitless. 



• Alumni made various responses 
when asked nearly a year ago what 
they thought of the plan to build a 
memorial stadium. The proposition 
was approved almost unanimously. 
Loyal alumni saw in the plan oppor- 
tunity to begin repaying, their Alma 
Mater for the splendid start In life 
she had given them, and promised 
payment in accordance with their 
talents. For years the alumni had 
been trying to agree on some large 
project to develop in the name of 
their college mother. Here was and 
is that project.

thought the college family and Man-

The majority opinion of the alum- 
ni who expressed ideas was to ad- 
vertise the project for a year and 
then let them know how much was 
expected of them and when contribu- 
tions would be received. Many still 
thinking the football game with K. 
U. the one big event of the year, ad- 
vised making a call on the alumni 
immediately after the victory over 
the Jayhawks October 28. The sug- 
gestion has merit. 

But the stadium must be built 
regardless of a football victory over 
K. U. or any other of the U.'s the 
Aggies play annually. It is needed, 
it has been started, and alumni help 
has been promised. Unity, liberal- 
ity, and cooperation will complete the 

It's a big job. That's why it is 
a worthy undertaking for big hearted 
alumni. And that's why the alumni 
should be ready to start work on it 
at the drop of the hat. 

Has Jobs for Aggies 
Earl J. Trosper, '10, 1103 Majes- 
tic Theater building, Chicago, is a 
very busy man. He is general 
agency supervisor for the American 
Life Insurance company, is director 
of the service and information de- 
partment, has organized a national 
woman's department, and has the 
state agency for the company In 

Trosper took up his work with the 
company about the middle of July 
and "led the boys under the wire 
for the largest production for the 
month of July, winning all the prizes 
offered by the company for the 
month, which totaled $350." 

As agency supervisor, Trosper Is 
rebuilding and extending the organi- 
zation to all parts of the United 
States, he writes, "and It follows 
necessarily that we have a lot of 
splendid territory for men and wo- 
men who can qualify. I am sure there 
are a number of Aggies who are com- 
petent to serve as district managers 
for our company." 

In announcing his appointment, the 
official publication of the company 
reported Trosper's record as follows: 
"Mr. Trosper has had a somewhat 
remarkable career, and all of his past 
experience In educational and organ- 
ization work seems to have befitted 
him for his present Important position 
with the company. He was born on a 
farm near Beattie, Kan., was gradu- 
ated from the Kansas State Agricul- 
tural college, and spent two years 
supervising the first agricultural high 
school in the state of Iowa at Ester- 

"He was appointed and acted as 
supervisor of livestock for the United 
States bureau of animal industry in 
the southwest states. Following this he 
was state agricultural high school 
supervisor for North Dakota and later 
in the same capacity for Minnesota. He 
was district agricultural agent for the 
Northeast Missouri Agricultural In- 
dustrial association, with the Univer- 
sity of Missouri and the United States 
department of agriculture cooperating. 
"In 1919, Mr. Trosper originated and 
organized the National Federation of 
Cooperative Livestock shippers, whose 
membership now approximates 60 per 
cent of the livestock shippers of the 
country. He has taken an active part 
also in the formation of the State 
Farmers' Grain Dealers' association in 
cooperation with the National Farm- 
ers' Grain Dealers' association, and 
educational department. 

"While indulging some of these 
voluminous activities, many of them 
all at one time, Mr. Trosper acted as 
dairy editor of the Journal of Agricul- 
ture, St. Louis; livestock editor of the 
American Cooperative Manager, and 
livestock editor of the American Co- 
operative Journal, the official journals 
of the National Farmers' Grain Deal- 
ers' association. 

"He originated and organized the 
national calf club idea, which is 
the foundation for the great boys' and 
BTirls' calf club movement throughout

Stark IndlvidoBl Star of IVIldcats In 
First Conference Game of 1922 Foot- 
ball Season — Opponents' Count- 
ers Gained on Forward Pass 

The Wildcats journeyed to St. 
Louis on Saturday last, October 14, 
and snatched their first conference 
game of the season from the Wash- 
ington university Pikers. The score 
was 22 to 14, the Aggies getting three 
touchdowns, two goals following 
touchdowns, and a safety, and the 
Pikers taking two touchdowns with 
goals following. 

It was a hard, drilling game with 
a considerable number of minor in- 
juries. From the first whistle to the 
last down three hours were used up, 
much time being taken out — particu- 
larly by Washington — for Injuries. 
But the crowd was enthusiastic and 
evidenced some very fine sportsman- 
ship. They liked the work of the 
Aggie Wildcats and said so. When 
Stark was withdrawn from the game 
because of a minor Injury they gave 
him a "hand." 


Stark, Aggie half, was the partic- 
ular star of the game. Four, six, and 
eight yard gains through the line or 
skirting the ends were easy for him. 
To give the crowd a special thrill in 
return for the admission fee he 
staged one especially interesting 55 
yard twist, during which he dodged 
or stltC armed the entire opposition. 

Captain Hahn's work in the line 
and his speed In getting down under 
punts were also exceptionally pleas- 
ing. Brandley at half did good de- 
fensive work and Axline, who re- 
placed Stark, made gains that caused 
the crowd to wonder why Bachman 
does not increase tlie number In his 
first team. 


Thumaer and Claypool at half and 
Greene, fullback, did the best work 
for Washington. The Piker ends also 
played good football. Washington 
had planned a neat defense aeainst 
the Wildcat assault and the goinj' 
was quite different from what it had 
been with Washburn the week be- 
fore. Their two touchdowns came as 
a result of long passes, the kind rab- 
id opponents are want to call flukes, 
but they were neatly executed and 
they count for yards and points. With 
thr exception of these two passes the 
Aggie goal was never threatened. 


The Aggies were minus the ser- 
vices of "Ding" Burton, halfback, 
who is nursing a badly sprained ten- 
don from the Washburn game. The 
high quality of Bachman's second 
stringers, however, solved the prob- 
lem, as it promises to solve any 
others that may arise. Aggie fans 
are pleased with the outcome of the 
game, even though they were count- 
ing on a heavier majority. They are 
particularly glad that the Wildcats 
have encountered a really live, scrap- 
py foe, and come away victorious.

(By Burr Swartz, Aggie Quarterback, 
Journalism '24) 

A crowd of about 6,000 witnessed 
the game, and not many present were 
giving the "Jay Rah." 

Aggies put the first touchdown 
over in five minutes and had the 
Pikers off their feet until they com- 
pleted a lucky freak pass which gave 
them confidence. From then on they 
were out for blood. 

The Pikers put up a strong game 
and the Aggies were just a little off 
form. This answers the question of 
the enthusiastic fan who wants to 
know what was the matter. 

It is humorous to be in a game 
and hear the players quarrel. The 
tackle opposing Tom Sebrlng, called 
him a big "farmer." Tom replied 
hastily, "I'll slap you on the wrist 
in a minute," and just then Tom 
snagged a pass out of the air for a 
nice gain. 

This same tackle got real mean 
and nasty to Stalb, our mideet tac- 
kle, and said he was going to see 
him after the game. He did manage 
to see him just after the final whis- 
tle, but not to fight. No, he told 
Staib he played a fine game and also 
invited the Aggie tackle out to din- 

It's a funny thing, that line of 
scrimmage. It Is just like a board 
fence between two sets of players. 
The fighting is done with their 
mouths, generally. 

Stark's 55 yard run was the fea- 
ture of the game. There was just 
one man between him and the goal 
post. The Wild Pussies managed to 
put the pigskin on over for a coun- 

Stark was forced out of the game 
on account of an injury, but Axline 
played a whale of a game when he 
was in there. One of his kicks 
measured 60 yards. Some kick. 

The Aggies were butter fingered 
when it came to catching forward 
passes. Several passes landed in 
their arms only to bounce out. 

After the game several of the 
Washington players walked off the 
field with tears in their eyes. One 
of the Aggies remarked to them, 
"You have no reason to feel bad, 
just wait till we get home Monday 
and see what we get from Bachman." 

Another Aggie gave them a word of 
encouragement by telling them that 
they got beat by a real football team. 

Just as the boys were leaving St. 
Louis, a couple of them were so un- 
fortunate as to have several mem- 
bers of the fair sex accompany them 
to the station. They were saying 
goodbye when up sprang a voice, 
which sounded just like that of Mike 
Ahearn's, "Don't get offside, boys."

Between now and Thanksgiving 
the AgKies will meet five strong Mis- 
souri Valley conference teams on 
successive Saturdays, beginning 
this week end when Bachman's 
charges go against Bonnie Owen's 
Oklahoma Sooners at Norman. Fol- 
lowing Oklahoma the Aggies will 
meet K. U. at Manhattan October 28, 
Missouri at Columbia November 4, 
Ames at Manhattan Armistice day, 
and Nebraska at Lincoln November 
18. The Wildcats will wind up their 
season at Manhattan, playing Texas 
Christian university Thanksgiving 

The outcome of the Washington- 
Aggie game at St. Louis last Satur- 
day, resulting in a 22-14 victory for 
K. S. A. C, was a surprise to local 
followers of the game. They expected 
the Kansas team to win by at least 
three touchdowns. But the contest 

was played without the services of 
Burton, who is out of the game with 
an injured side, leaving the backfield 
with less offensive power than it had 
in the Washburn contest the week 
previously, when the Ichabods were 
turned back 47-0. 

Bachman has switched Axline, 
who substituted for Stark In the Pik- 
er contest, to right half, which is 
Burton's flank. Brandley, as well as 
Burton, is on the hospital list. Axline 
played a good game at St. Louis. In- 
dications are that there will be no 
further changes in the line up at Nor- 
man. The Aggie team suffered no 
injuries to speak of in the game last 

The history of Sooner-Aggle foot- 
ball relations can be taken in at a

If the people of Kansas continue 
to develop interest in landscape gar- 
dening as they have in the past two 
years, the time is coming when Wil- 
lian Allen White's criticism that Kan- 
sans do not sufficiently appreciate 
beauty in their landscapes, will be 
much less well founded than it now 
is. A report recently made by Dean 
F. D. Farrell of Kansas State Agri- 
cultural college, states that during 
the biennium ending June 30, 1922 
no fewer than 201 landscape gar- 
dening enterprises were carried on in 
the state under the advisory di- 
rection of the college. These enter- 
prises are located in 32 counties, 
from Thomas in the northwest to 
Crawford in the southeast. 

Of the 201 enterprises, 36 were 
public parks, and the remainder were 

private projectEl. They ranged in 
size from the beautification of home 
surroundings both in town and in 
the country to large public landscape 
projects like the improvement of the 
state house grounds in Topeka. This 
work of the college is under the 
supervision of Albert Dickens, pro- 
fessor of horticulture, and W. S. 
WIedorn, assistant professor of land- 
scape gardening. These speclallstB 
supply Information and make sug- 
gestions regarding plant materials 
suitable for each locality and'setting, 
planting plans, cultural operations, 
and other matters which require at- 
tention in landscape beautification.

One thousand and sixty first and

morning to form an Aggie thunder- 
ing thousand for the cheering at 
the Kansas Aggie football games. The 
men will appear at the games in the 
O. D. uniform and will sit together 
in a section in order to obtain the 
best results. 

Major F. B. Terrell, commandant, 
told the assembled students of the 
need of cooperation in cheering at 
the football games. The men ex- 
pressed themselves as being willing 
to forego dates for the afternoons of 

The Aggie thundering thousand 
will first appear at the Homecoming 
game next week. Because of the 
large crowd expected for the contest 
and the lack of sufficient accommoda- 
tions in the stadium, this group of 
popsters will congregate In the 
bleachers. But for the two remain- 
ing games of the season, they will 
occupy the middle section in the new 
stadium. Freshmen will not be re- 
quired to wear the purple caps to the 
game but they must have them along, 
for at some time during the after- 
noon, they will don the headpieces 
and form a purple "K" in their sec-

The biennial report of the engi- 
neering division of the Kansas State 
Agricultural college shows a marked 
growth in the number of students en- 
rolled in four year engineering cour- 
ses. In the college year 1918-19, the 
engineering enrollment In collegiate 
courses was 506. The number of 
students enrolled in similar courses 
in 1921-22 was 753, showing an In- 
crease of 247 students. 

When it is considered that the 
freshman enrolment in the school 
year 1918-19 was abnormally high 
because of the Influx of S. A. T. C. 
students, the Increase In the enrol- 
ment is noteworthy. Eliminating 
the freshman classes in these two 
years for comparison, the enrolment 
of senior and junior engineering 
students was more than twice as 
great at the end of the biennium 
period. The ratio for sophomore 
stbdents is equally large. 



Experiments in Which They Aid In 
Biennium Nnmber 814 

Farmers In 76 Kansas counties 
have given active assistance to the 
agricultural experiment station In the 
conduct of experiments with soils 
and crops during the past two years, 
according to the biennial report of 
Dean F. D. Farrell, director of the 
experiment station. These coopera- 
tive experiments numbered 814 and 
included tests of varieties of wheat, 
oats, barley, corn, and sorghums, 
and of various cultural methods, 
commercial fertilizers, lime, and crop 
rotation. The tests were made on 
practical farms under the direct 
supervision of H. H. Laude and N. 
E. Dale of the department of agron- 
omy of the experiment station. 

Allen county had the largest num- 
ber of cooperative experiments, a 
total of 31 during the two-year per- 
iod. Other counties having more 
than 20 of the experiments were 
Cherokee with 25, Crawford with 27, 
Dickinson with 26, Leavenworth with 
22, Reno with 29, and Sedgwick and 
Sumner with 25 each. The principal 
object of these experiments is to 
try out on practical farms in various 
parts of the state certain farm prac- 
tices which the results secured in the 
work at the main experiment station 
at Manhattan and at the branch sa- 
tions a Hays, Garden City, Colby, 
and Tribune indicate are likely to be 
of value.

Hard Fought Battle Viie« Up AKKie 

RriierveM In Last Period — Boch- 

inan'N Men Outweighed by Okla- 

homn Teoni 15 Pound* to Man 

The Aggie Wildcats strayed down 
to Norman, Okla., on Saturday, Oc- 
tober 21, and tied the Sooners 7 to 7 
in one of the fiercest combats ever 
staged in the Missouri Valley confer- 
ence. Notwithstanding the fact that 
they were ouweighed 15 pounds to 
the man, Bachman's scrappers swept 
Bennie Owen's hopefuls oft their feet 
for a touchdown in the first 10 min- 
utes of play and then doggedly fought 
off a tying score until within two 
minutes of time for the final whistle. 

Oklahoma was out for revenge for 
their defeat of last year and for the 
7 to 7 tie of the year before. Their 
bear stories had carefully camou- 
flaged a two-hundred-pound line 
and a big backfield with a terrific 
drive. Rated before last Saturday as 
one of this year's weak sisters of the 
Valley, they now loom as one of Ne- 
braska's most formidable opponents. 


That the Aggies went to Norman 
to win was evident from the first 
kickoif. A zigzag, slashing attack 
off tackle and around end mixed with 
a puzzle of short and long passes 
drove the ball from the Aggie 20 
yard line over the Sooners' goal in 
thirteen plays. Stark, Axline and 
Swartz did the snapping and lugging 
and the famous Bachman line tore 
big holes in the 200 pound defense 
for them. The work of the three 
backfield stars during the attack will 
go down in history as one of the fierc- 
est rushes ever staged by an Aggie 
team. Stark carried the ball over 
In an 11 yard smash through a hole 
big enough for a wagon, exactly 10 
minutes after the battle began. 

The Wildcats threatened to score 
again in the first period, but failed to 
find the finishing punch. In the sec- 
ond half the beef of the Oklahoma 
team began to count and the light 
Aggie backfield began to wear down 
and drop out because of injuries. Ax- 
line, who had played a whale of a 
game, went out with an injury to 
muscles in his side and Stark, a loom- 
ing candidate for almost anybody's 
all-Valley team, also had to be with- 


Then it was that the Aggie line 
demonstrated how a football game 
can be played without a great deal 
of aid from the backfield. Brandley 
was badly hurt soon after he sub- 
stituted for Axline, and Brown, sub- 
stituting for Stark, was soon worn 
down by the fierce charging of the 
Sooners. So the line took up the 
Wildcats' burden. They twice held 
Oklahoma on the Aggie 4 yard line 
and it was only after a third advance 
that Hammert of Oklahoma was able 
to shoot around end for a touchdown. 

Coach Bachman and his charges 
now feel that they are all ready for 
Nebraska, for they feel positive that 
nobody grows football players any 
bigger than they do at Oklahoma.

AKKiea Ge* Rather Badly Damaged in 
Oklahoma Battle 

Head Coach Bachman's two dozen 
Aggie players limped into camp 
from their invasion of Oklahoma 
carrying sundry portions of the anat- 
omy in slings. The hospital list in- 
cluded Axline, Stark, and Brandley, 
in the backfield, and Schindler in the 
line. Both Axline and Schindler 
were carried off the field at Norman. 
The others were not quite so serious- 
ly injured — but enough that the Ag- 
gie coaches are worried. 

They meet thf; Jayhawkers here at 
iManhattan Saturday. What ef- 
fect the injuries, resulting from the 
hardest fought game the Wildcats 
have been through in many a day, 
will have on the week end engage- 
ment with the university gives con- 
siderable room for speculation. 

Ding Burton, star halfback, has 
been out of the game since the Wash- 
burn contest. Whether his injuries 
will permit him to go into the K. U. 
game cannot be determined until 
the last of the week. He is again ap- 
pearing in uniform after a two weeks' 

Scrimmage against the freshmen, 
who are using K. U. formations, is 
the program which Coach Bachman 
has outlined for the week. There is- 
n't much to go on, the Drake game 
being the only one which afforded 
scouts a basis for sizing up the Jay- 
hawker style of attack. The Army 
game was played too early to afford 
much indication. 

Neither has the dopester much to 
go on by way of comparison. The Ag- 
gies beat Washburn badly, but in the 
game here the Ichabods used their 
freshmen. Their first year men did 
not play at Lawrence, but there the 
K. U. second string men opened the 
attack against the visitors. The de- 
feat of Washburn was not much 
worse here than it was at Lawrence. 
A comparison of scores means little, 
If anything. 

Drake beat Washington quite de- 
cisively at St. Louis last Saturday — 
much more decisively than the Ag- 
gies beat the Pikers the week pre- 
vious. The fan may get some satisfac- 
tion in recalling that Drake beat K. 
U. 6 to the same day the Aggies 
(Concluded on pac* four)

Secretary A%'m Speak on Vk^nr Finance 

Corporation and Reserve Board 


The subject upon which Henry C. 
Wallace, secretary of agriculture, 
will speak in student assembly at 
K. S. A. C. Thursday is "The Farmer, 
the War Finance Corporation, and 
the Federal Reserve Board." 

Mr. Wallace is publisher of Wal- 
lace's Farmer, and until his appoint- 
ment in the Harding cabinet he was 
actively engaged as editor of the 
magazine. He is described by the 
Washington correspondent of the 
Kansas City Star as one of the few 
workers at the national capital who 
enjoy a full farmer's work day. 

"Wallace always figures things out 
in terms of the farmer," the Star's 
correspondent added. "And so he 
gives his story of where the farmer is 
getting off. He did it in Ohio and he 
is talking his own ideas of the farm 
situation everywhere. He believes 
that is what the farmers want to hear 
him talk. At any rate it is what he is 
interested in." 





Lunch at Barraelis and Visit Points of 

The bankers of the fifth district 
holding the annual meeting here

Edwards, and Prof. C. V. Williams 
were speakers at the convention. 

Laboratories Determine (luallty of Road 
Materials, Grease and Oils, and 
Faint — Standardization of Pro- 
ducts Results In Economy 

The engineering experiment sta- 
tion of the Kansas State Agricul- 
tural college has been engaged in re- 
cent years in research, [he results 
of which are of commercial import- 
ance to the citizens of Kansas. The 
testing of highway materials, lubri- 
cating oils, and paints, for the state, 
has made possible the purchase of a 
first class material for less cost. All 
of this work has been done without 
expense to the state, but, had com- 
mercial engineering laboratories been 
instructed to perform these tests, the 
expense incurred would have been 
thousands of dollars. 

The most important work of the 
engineering experiment station dur- 
ing the last four years was probably 
the testing of road materials for the 
various counties of Kanaasl. The 
road materials testing laboratory in 
its capacity as the official laboratory 
of the Kansas highway commission 
has tested all material going into 
state and federal aid road projects in 
this state. 


A total of 10,054 samples have 
been tested during the biennium, cov- 
ering all materials used in the con- 
struction of 287 miles of surfaced 
roads, and bridges, costing $10,403,- 
810. A conservative estimate of the 
saving through lessened transporta- 
tion costs, decreased maintenance 
and prolonged life made possible by 
this testing work is $725,000. Branch 
laboratories have been established 
and assistant testing engineers have 
been placed at 16 cement and brick 
plants furnishing material for high- 
way construction within the state. 
Representatives of the laboratories 
made 84 inspection trips, visiting 46 
counties and the four states adjoin- 
ing Kansas. 


The mechanical engineering labor- 
atory of the engineering experiment 
sattion has during the last year thor- 
oughly revised the specifications for 
lubricating oils for use in the state 
institutions of Kansas after numer- 
ous conferences with commercial oil 
men and many tests of oils. All 
lubricating oils and greases used by 
the state are now purchased under 
these specifications and samples from 
all .shipments of oils must be tested 
and approved by this laboratory be- 
fore they are released for use. 

A total of 193 samples of oil and 
grease were tested last year repre- 
senting 13,000 gallons of lubricating 
oil and 1,200 pounds of grease. It was 
necessary to reject 41 of these 
samples as unsuitable for use. 


The chemical laboratory of the en- 
gineering station last year prepared 
specifications for white lead, zinc 
oxide, raw and boiled linseed oil, and 
turpentine, which specifications were 
adopted by the state as the basis for 
all contracts for these painting ma- 
terials. Samples of all these mater- 
ials must be tested and approved by 
the laboratory before the materials 
are released for use. During the 
last year 143 samples have been 
tested, of which 14 samples of zinc 
oxide were rejected on account of

Advertising used to be done hap- 
hazard. Nobody had any real know- 
ledge of it. Advertising has got 
standardized largely as a result of 
the efforts and investigations of ad- 
vertising agencies. 

One of the main points discovered 
is the problem of waste circulation. 
The waste circulation of a publica- 
tion is that part of the circulation 
which goes to persons who cannot be 
interested in the particular product 
under consideration. Formerly the 
advertiser knew nothing about this 
problem — he placed his advertising 
hlt-or-miss. Now he tries to place 
his copy in papers that have a mini- 
mum of waste circulation so far as 
his product is concerned. 

Until recently, the farmer failed 
to consider the fact that he has a 
similar problem. It is not the pro- 
blem of waste circulation, but it is 
the problem on which waste circula- 
tion depends. There is waste circu- 
lation because there Is a waste mar- 
ket — a market which on account of 
locality, season, lack of purchasing 
power, or other reasons, will not 
absorb the product of the manu- 

Waste market concerns the farmer 
as much as it concerns the manu- 
facturer. Low prices on farm pro- 
duets have been due to a consider- 
able extent to the fact that the farm- 
er dumped his products upon the 
market without considering possible 
wastage due to locality, excessive 
supply of the product, or other fac- 

The advertising agency helped 
solve the problem of the advertiser 
because it had a big enough organiza- 
tion. The Individual advertiser 
could not have solved his problems 
alone, but a number of advertisers, 
patronizing an agency, got results. 

The Individual farmer cannot 
solve his problem alone. The pro- 
blem can be solved only by organiza- 
tion, preferably cooperative, for mar- 
keting purposes. By this means the 
waste market can be to a large ex- 
tent eliminated.

Author Unknown 

Youthful in spirit, if not in years. Calm and steady 
eyes, firm mouth, unassuming manner, a listener rather 
than a speaker. A man who sees and understands, who 
connects causes and effects, discerning the abstract In- 
tangibles in the midst of masses of concrete tangible. A 
man unspoiled by rough contacts and only contemptuous- 
ly amused by the shams, fakes, and sordid writhings of 
the avaricious and cunningly ambitious. He keeps faith 
with strangers as with friends and does not seek to win 
vicariously. He is one who pretends no mission, but sub- 
tly serves the finest graces and truest causes. Possessed 
of convictions and courage is he. Instinctively, he temp- 
ers the wind for the shorn lamb. By the same instinct 
he snares the wolf. His writings are those of a good 
citizen, a man somewhat under the influence of American 
traditions, somewhat softened in his nature by loving 
women or children, somewhat controlled by historic pro- 
fessional idealisms, but mainly guided by the innate de- 
sire of the born publicist who acts upon the unchanging 
tenet that the truth shall make us free, accepting the 
liberal interpretation of that phrase. 

The humor of life is not lost upon him. He has, as 
well, the power to catch its pathos and transmit it to the 
many. He is not a slave to mere conventions. He goes 
his free way, a gentleman, a student, a contented and 
often unsung benefactor of his kind.

The Manhattan Horticultural so- 
ciety will meet at the home of Pro- 
fessor Walters, Thursday, October 28, 
at 2:30 o'clock. The program is, 
"Nuts that Might Be Grown in Kan- 
sas," by George L. Clothier, and 
"Notes from the Garden," by T. C. 
Wells. All are invited. 

Upon request by the faculty and 
board of regents, Dr. James Law, 
veterinarian, of Cornell university, 
kindly consented to deliver a lecture 
on tuberculosis to the students and 
others interested. The lecture was 
given on Wednesday evening in the 
college chapel. It was an admirable 
exposition of the subject, and was 
duly appreciated by a large audience. 

Louis P. Brous, M. S. '96, teacher 
of sciences and drawing in the Kan- 
sas City, (Kas.) high school, writes 
that he has organized two volunteer 
classes in Industrial art, and that the 
enthusiasm for the study is constant- 
ly growing. Referring to Professor 
Walters, whose assistant he was 
while pursuing post-graduate work 
here, he writes, "I believe that my 
most successful methods of present- 
ing subjects to classes were learned 
and absorbed with him. I try to make 
science common sense." 

The board of regents of this col- 
lege met on Tuesday, October 19, 
at 4:30 p. m., and adjourned on i 
Friday evening, October 22, to meet 
again on December 15. Among the | 
more important items of business 
transacted are the establishment of a 
dairy school and the disposition of ! 
the present college herd. Miss Har- 
riet Howell, a graduate of Pratt in- 
stitute, was elected to the position 
of superintendent of sewing. A full

From an article In the Eureka 
Union we excerpt the following: "Miss 
Evangelina Clsneros, the young lady 
who was imprisoned by Butcher Wey- 
ler, in Cuba, and for whose release 
a great many prominent people both 
ladies and gentlemen in this country 
and Europe petitioned the Queen 
Regent of Spain, has been finally 
liberated, through the enterprise of 
the New York Journal. The Journal, 
seeing that petitions from the entire 
civilized world could have no effect 
upon the brutish Spanish govern- 
ment, organized a release party, and 
by drugging the guards succeeded in 
breaking open the jail and releas-

Providing floor coverings for the 
home lb often a question of making 
the best of what materials are at 
hand. One way of doing this is to 
have rugs woven from old woolen 
carpets and rugs too shabby to be 
used longer. . Factories for doing the 
work are found in many localities. 
The old material is cut into strips 
about three-fourths inches wide which 
are sewed together and twisted. They 
form the filling for the new rug. Cot- 
ton string is used for the warp. These 
rugs are heavy and soft. They are 
alike on both sides and are very 
durable provided they are cleaned 
carefully. They are generally rath- 
er neutral in color and without a def- 
inite design. Borders may be woven 
from strips of carpet of solid color 
or figured carpet may be dyed for 
the purpose. In general, about 6% 
pounds of old carpet is required to 
make a square yard of the rewoven 
fabric, depending on the weight of 
the old material. 

Completed federal aid roads have 
been growing at the rate of more 
than 1,000 miles a month during the 
present working season, says the bu- 
reau of public roads of the United 
States department of agriculture. On 
August 31, 6,401 miles had been 
added since the beginning of the 
present road building year. On the 
same date there was under construc- 
tion 14,670 miles. Federal aid roads 
in all stages, from approved projects 
to completed roads, now total 41,405 
miles. This is about 23 per cent of 
the proposed system, which will cov- 
er the entire country and will be 
about 180,000 miles in length.

Aggies Celebrate at Hays 

The Aggie reunion at Hays last 
week proved to be a real old time 
pep meeting with all the trimmings. 
Thirty Aggies and a 1940 prospect 
partook of a banquet served in the 
Women's building of the Hays nor- 
mal school. The old far famed con- 
tagious Kansas Aggie spirit was 
everywhere in evidence. It was a 
perfect day from the minute the 
guests were met at the entrance by 
Miss Agnew, chief engineer of the 
banquet, who pinned tags on them 
bearing name and year of graduation, 
until "Tiny" Gus Seng, toastmaster 
of the occasion gave the word that 
the reunion would adjourn. 

"Alma Mater" was sung in real 
old fashioned style but not until 
Miss Agnew had rescued it from the 
depths, for Louie Alcher had piichert 
it too low. Old "Jay Rah" came in for 
a whirlwind finish, one of the fight- 
ing kind so often heard on the side 
line when the Wildcats tangle with 
K. U. 

It was a real Aggie crowd and they 
had a real Aggie time. Three rous- 
ing cheers for Miss Agnew were pro- 
posed and given lustily in recogni- 
tion of her good work in fostering the 
reunion, and the splendid part shs 
played in making it such a complete 

"Tiny" Seng took a lot of Joy out 
of lite for a few moments when he 
arose and stated that the speaking 
■would now begin. Very few antici- 
pated that there would be any speak- 
ing, for "Tiny" tactfully kept that 
part of it out of the announcements 
for the gathering. However the im- 
promptu speeches wete well received 
and the keynote of the day was the 
stadium. The alumni want the sta- 
dium, there is no mistake about that, 
and when the time comes for them 
to contribute, the Aggies at the Hays 
reunion will be there with the shek- 
els. The Homecoming game received 
considerable comment and at least 
two auto parties were made up to 

Irving Root, City Planner 

Irving C. Root, '12, announces that 
he has opened offices at 312 Genesee 
Bank building, Flint, Mich., for pro- 
fessional practice in general city 
planning and landscape architecture. 
He was formerly planning engineer 
for the Flint city planning board. 
Prior to that he was for a number 
of years with the office of John Nol- 
en, city planner, Cambridge, Maaa. 

"Mr. Root," reads his announce-

Let's take for a text this letter 
from an engineering graduate in 
Pennsylvania. It is not necessary to 
divulge his name, which would make 
only for prejudice. 

Dear Sir: 

Last evening I received your letter 
of the tenth, and having been urged 
several times to join the association- 
and not having done so I now take the 
time to tell you why I have not. 

In the first place I have not hardly 
gotten on my feet financially and 
could not see my way clear to let loose 
of even five dollars. In the second 
place I do not think the college or 
very many there ever thought of me 
since I left. I am not interested In 
the athletic activities of the school so 
much as I am in whether the students 
who have to work their way through 
as I did, are having to work at low 
wages or not work at all. 

If I thought the association would 
use the influence you say it has in 
getting the legislature to change the 
name of the college and thereby, with 
the aid of the press, put so many 
Kansas citizens right and out of Ig- 
norance of the fact that the college 
is not a school of agriculture alone, I 
should make out my check immediately. 
Another thing which I think is of far 
more importance than for me to keep 
my memory fresh of the times I spent 
there, is that the faculty be made to 
see the need of work for students and 
turn over all the work possible to 
students even though it takes time to 
organize the work so that it could be 
done at odd hours. 

Although I hope the good work of 
the association goes on, I think the 
Y. M. C. A. is doing far more for the 
college than any other organization 
for the money invested. 
Sincerely yours. 


One purpose of the alumni execu- 
tive secretary's office Is to be of 
service to persons who have gone 
out from the college. Here la an 
example of legitimate service It may 
perform when called upon, as It is 
at long Intervals. 

A graduate wishes to get In touch 
with another whose address Is un- 
known. Direct the letter to the 
person of unknown address in care 
of the executive secretary, with the 
notation "Please forward." The 
secretary will speed the letter on to 
the last known address of the per- 
son for whom the letter is Intended. 
Tlie envelope will not be opened in 
the secretary's office. If the person 
addressed has been lost to the office, 
the letter will be returned. 

Occasionally a request for an ad- 
dress comes to the secretary's of- 
fice with the additional request that 
the Information be sent at once. 
The time taken to receive and act 
upon the information can be saved 
in urgent cases by following the 
procedure suggested. 

Make use of the executive sec- 
retary's office in every way pos- 



structure would be put, and appealed 
to the alumni to get ready their lib- 
eral contributions for completing It. 

Cllf Stratton, '11, managing editor 
of the Topeka Daily Capital, was 
toastmaster. Floyd B. Nichols, '12, 
managing editor Capper farm press; 
Dr. H. H. King, President W. M. 
Jardine, and Oley Weaver, '11, alum- 
ni executive secretary, made short 
talks. Prof. Ira Pratt, head of the de- 
partment of music, sang. Charles 
R. Enlow, '20, led the cheering. 

Frank O. Blecha, '18, president of 
the Shawnee association, had much to 
do with the success of the dinner. 

A Call for H. W. D. 

Edna (Barber) Rechel, '15, who 
now lives at 849 East First South, 
Salt Lake City, Utah, writes: 

"What has become of our Sun- 
flower column? We miss it. Sun- 
flowers always came immediately aft- 
er the alumni column in the order of 
reading The Industrialist. 

"Mr. Rechel now is in the trust 
department of the Tracy Loan and 
Trust company of Salt Lake City, a 
splendid position. 

"We are strong for the alumni 
association. We will not be able to 
see the Homecoming game but we 
are rooting strong for our boya." 

Daughters Goes to Wathena 

C. L. Daughters, '09, bought the 
Wathena Times of Colonel C. W. 
Ryan and assumed charge last week. 
Title to the property changes Novem- 
ber 1. 

Daughters Is well known in Kan- 
sas newspaper circles. He served an 
apprenticeship under his uncle, Ew- 
ing Herbert, of the Hiawatha World. 
He was editor of the Manhattan Mer- 
cury wlien it was ch.inged into a 
daily in 1911. He served with the 
Uarrick Publishing company, Kansas 
City, Mo., and was until recently 
editor of the Kansas Stockman. 

There's the text. Make your own 
sermon. But do you know what's 
the matter with that boy? He's a 
'22, broke, a long way from college 
and from home, the folks don't 
write, and he's homesick. He's 
scratching for an alibi. He's the 
very fellow that needs membership in 
the alumni association, and he's 
afraid to connect up through fear of 
showing weakness. 

He knows the state of Kansaa is 
not going to maintain an educational 
Inatitutlon the size of 'this one and 
In addition hire students to come fill 
ita halls. That's grabbing at a 

And did this new Pennsylvania 
citizen subscribe for and read the 
old home papers he would see how 
much stress the newspaper boya are 
placing on the report that there are 
more engineers than farmers en- 
rolled at K. S. A. C. 

What's in a name, anyway? Does 
it keep a fellow from showing what's 
in him? If the best engineers In the 
country are being turned out as grad- 
uates from an agricultural college 
or from a theological seminary, the 
world soon will find it out. 

The alumni association doesn't 
want this fellow's check just now. 
Let him go down to the Y. M. C. A. 
and buy five dollars' worth of friend- 
ship and acquaintance and ahake 
himself out of the glooms. Old Al- 
ma Mater loves him as one of her 
children but If he will stray from 
home he must expect a few fights 
with the neighbor kids. That's 
what makes the man. 

Occupation — "Hotel Loafer"

"hotel loafer, first class." Mr. Hag- 
an is traveling in the interests of 
the Westlnghouse company, and the 
couple has reached Japan. 

Mr. and Mrs. Hagan left New York 
December 31, 1921 for Southampton. 
After a few days In London they 
crossed to Holland where they spent 
several weeks, then to Marseilles by 
way of Paris. The trip from Paris 
to Java was described in Mrs. Hag- 
an's letter published last week in 
The Industrialist. They left Java 
late in June and after short atopa 
in Singapore and Hong Kong reached 
Japan about the middle of July. 
They expect to reach San Francisco 
the first of the year. 

"We have had a most interesting 
trip," writes Mrs. Hagan, "but will 
not be particularly regretful when 
the trunk labels read 'San Francis-

which he is director. 
"My dear Weaver: 
"Enclosed is a ?5.00 check for a

to press you might pass the editor 
thia letter and see if he can figure 
out how to list me, as I believe I 
never filled out the last question- 
naire you sent me. Those question- 
naires always embarraaaed me, as 
they seem made out for a man with 
one wife and one job. They seemed 
to be rendering me a gentle admoni- 
tion for departing from the straight 
and narrow path of specialization in 
morals, manners, and occupation. I 
felt that between the lines was the 
question, 'Do you smoke cigarettes?' 
I do — and a guilty conscience need-

my chief claim to glory in this line 
being the mechanical draft or fan

Skill In Craft, Edmund 

Vance Coolie Snya 

"Anyone can learn to write. 
Writing is a craft that can be ac- 
quired by any person who will give 
it the necessary interest, time, and 

This was the view expressed by Ed- 
mund Vance Cooke, writer and lec- 
turer, in an address at the college 
last week. Mr. Cooke spoke both at 
the student assembly and before the 
students in industrial journalism. 

The current lack of interest in 
literature, and especially poetry, was 
scored by Mr. Cooke, who accused 
the public of seeking recreations re- 
quiring no thought. 


"The most highbrow of us will 
agree that he sees Bill Hart oftener 
than he hears Will Shakespeare," he 
continued. "The motion pictures, 
the most popular entertainment in 
the United States, are the least intel- 
lectual recreation known to man. 
We attend the movies because we 
want to avoid thinking." 

The speaker also criticizled the 
"comic strips" that appear in many 
newspapers. Most of them, he de- 
clared, possess no humor whatever. 

"Ruskin said that he could live 
without paintings," remarked Mr. 
Cooke, "but that he could not live 
nearly so well. The same thing 
may be truly said of poetry. No man 
or woman can live so well without 
poetry. The sooner we come to un^ 
derstand this, the happier and more 
fruitful our lives will be." 


A unique feature of Mr. Cooke's 
address to the journalism students 
■was his analysis of the way in which 
a poem comes into being. He traced 
two of his own poems in detail from 
■ the initial suggestion from which 
both of them sprang, to the com- 
pleted verses. 

Mr. Cooke read extensively from 
his own work, pleasing his audiences 
tremendously both with the philoso- 
phy and expression of his poems and 
with the vocal interpretation which 
he gave them.

next Saturday. 


ContoHt with JnyliiiwkerN Will Draw 
EnorinouH Crowd 

To the local fans, the K. U. game 
becomes less important every year. 
It used to be the only contest of the 
season that really counted. The suc- 
cess which the Aggies have had in 
the last few years in games with the 
universities of Missouri and Okla- 
homa and with Ames has done much 
to remove the tradition of "Beat K. 
U." The Nebraska university game 
three weeks from next Saturday is 
more important than the Jayhawker 
game this week in the minds of the 
undergraduate Aggie fans today. 

But with the Aggie alumni it's a 
different story. Pew of them have 
ever seen an Aggie team defeat K. U. 
They are coming to Manhattan by 
thousands next Saturday lest they 
miss the spectacle of an Aggie team 
giving the Jayhawks a drubbing. 

It will no doubt be the best at- 
tended Aggie game played on the col- 
lege athletic field this season. Ames 
and Texas Christian are , the only 
teams besides K. U. left on the Wild- 
cat schedule for home games. The 
Husker game will be at Lincoln and 
the Missouri game at Columbia. 

It is to be the occasion of the an- 
nual Homecoming for Aggie alumni. 
They're going to be here In such 
numbers that Mike Ahearn doubts 
whether be will be able to supply 

seating accommodations. In addi- 
tion to the alumni and friends of the 
college there will be present a dele- 
gation of 1,000 or more from Law- 
rence, several hundreds of fans from 
cities within motoring distance from 
Manhattan, a large number of high 
school and college coaches and play- 
ers from this section of the state, 
and a large delegation of newspaper 
men here to attend the annual Aggie 
editors' football party, given by the 
journalism and athletic departments 
of the college. 

The maximum ol seating accommo- 
dations will be a little more than 
7,000. A little more than half of 
these are reserved. All reserved 
seats had been sold Monday night. 
Standing room for 2,000 or more 
may be provided. 

Three units of the memorial stad- 
ium, each unit having a seating ca- 
pacity of 820, are ready for use. K. 
U. rooters will occupy one of these. 
The other two were sold out within a 
tew hours after they were put on 

The forms for a fourth unit will be 
made available for spectators but 
seats in this unit will not be reserved. 
The south section of this incomplete 
unit is about 50 feet north of the 
north goal of the gridiron as laid out 
at present. 

Bleachers on the east side will seat 
1,740. Bleachers at the ends of the 
field will accommodate a total of 
800. The old grand stand will hold 
800. Bleachers on the west side of 
the field, south of the completed sec- 
tions of the stadium, will accommo-

"thundering thousand." 

A crowd of 20,000 will seek ad- 
mittance, it is predicted by persons 
who have been over the state in the 
last few weeks. Mike Ahearn does 
not believe the crowd will exceed 
10,000. The largest crowd ever to 
attend an Aggie game here num- 
bered less than 7,000. 




(By Burr Swartz, Aggie Quarterback, 
Journalism '24) 

The train which the Aggies took 
to Oklahoma was several hours late. 
This forced the team to take a short 
workout at El Reno, Okla., which 
caused a lot of excitement in the vil- 
lage. A large number of spectators 
watched the Wildcats perform. 

Mrs. Bachman accompanied the 
Wildcats to Oklahoma. She is visit- 
ing this week at Okmulgee, where 
her parents live. Mrs. Bachman was 
an O. U. coed not very long ago. 
She'll be home for the K. U. game. 

The day was rather warm and that 
Oklahoma water had a deadening ef- 
fect upon the team. The Aggies were 
constantly calling for it. 

Schindler was the only man to go 
under, due to the water. He fought 
'em till he dropped. 

Two hundred pounds from end to 
end is something to look at, for a 
light back field like the Aggies. 

O. U.'s backfield made our linemen 
look like children. 

When the game ended Bachman 
had reached the end of his string of 
substitutes for the backfield. 

Cochrane, the referee, said that 
it was the hardest game to otficate 
that he had ever worked. 

No snap to be playin' in, either. 

It might be said that the Aggie 
offense with the regular set of backs 
went through Oklahoma like water 
through a tin horn. It was too bad 
our men had to be knocked out. 

You may have a good team to 
start a game with and by the end of 
the first quarter not have a thing 

The game was full of breaks. 
We should have won, and again we 
could have lost. So why not take a 
tie and be satisfied? 

A country child might like a real, 
live Christmas present this year in 
the form of a purebred calf or pig, 
or a trio of chickens.

Resignations of R. L. Hensel and 
H. B. Winchester, associate profes- 
sors in the division of agriculture, 
took effect last week. Both had be- 
come members of the faculty of the 
Kansas State Agricultural college in 

Professor Hensel was associate 
professor of pasture management. 
He will engage in business with his 
father at San Antonio, Tex., where 
his address is 1014 North Cherry 
street. Professor Hensel's successor 
has not been named. 

Professor Winchester was con- 
nected with the animal husbandry 
department where he engaged in nu- 
trition investigations. He is to be- 
come manager of a large livestock 
enterprise in north central Nebraska 
where he will receive an attractive 
salary and a per cent of the gross 
profits. His address will be O'Neill, 


W. R. Horlacher, '20 and '22, has 
been appointed instructor in the de- 
parment of animal husbandry and 
will take over some of the duties of 
Professor Winchester. Mr. Horlacher 
was one of the outstanding graduates 
of the animal husbandry department. 
He received his master's degree from 
the college last June. 

Professor Hensel was the first 
man employed by the college to de- 
vote his entire time to the study of 
the pasture problems. His work has 
been principally with native pastures. 
Nearly sixteen million acres or about 
one-third of the total area of Kansas 
is in native grass. 

Speaking of Professor Hensel's 
work Prof. L. E. Call, head of the 
agronomy department, said: 


"Professor Hensel has found that 
the principal causes of weedy, run 
down native pastures are pasturing 
too early in the spring and too heavy 
pasturing or over grazing throughout 
the season. When these two kinds 
of abuse go on at the same time, the 
pasture deteriorates rapidly, and if 
continued tor a few years, may be al- 
most ruined. 

"He developed a plan of pasture 
management which promises to over- 
come many of the evils of both over 
grazing and too early grazing. In 
this system the pasture is divided in- 
to two parts. Stock is grazed on one 
part from the first of the grazing 
season to midsummer, and the grass 
on the other part is allowed to grow. 
After midsummer the stock Is 
changed to the other part of the pas- 
ture and the first is allowed to grow 
freely until winter. 


"This is done for two years. After 
two years the process is reversed. 
Under this system Professor Hensel 
has found that it is not only possible 
to carry more stock on the pasture, 
but weeds have decreased and the 
grass has increased in vigor in pas- 
tures handled in this way. 

"Professor Hensel has also made a 
study of the effect of burning pastures 
on the native vegetation. His work 
has shown that burning, if properly 
done and not accompanied by two 
early or too heavy grazing, may help 
to restore weedy pastures and also 
help to secure more uniform grazing 
of the entire pasture area. His work 
has also shown that burning is usual- 
ly not necessary in pastures that are 
properly grazed." 


President W. M. Jardine, in com- 
menting on Professor Winchester's 
resignation, said: 

"It is regrettable that we are los- 
ing Professor Winchester. He is a 
young man of marked ability and 
promise, and his research was prov- 
ing very useful. We feel, however, 
that he Is honored by being chosen 
to take charge of a big commercial 



While these views give only an ap- 
proximate idea of the appearance of 
the Aggie athletic field when the 
memorial stadium is completed they 
provide a basis for a conception of 
the finished structure. Both pic- 
tures were taken just before the 
Washburn game. 

The upper picture illustrates in a 
vivid way the excellence of any seat 
in the stadium. Most fans will re- 
call disappointments at being seated 
near the end of a playing field, yet it 
is quite obvious that a splendid' view 
of the entire playing field is ob- 
tained. This will be true of every 
seat in the stadium, due to the spec- 
ial plan of its construction. 

The lower picture affords a view of 
the one completed unit of the stad- 

ium which was occupied at the Wash- 
burn game. The second unit, to the 
left of the completed one, was not 
quite ready for use. 

Since these pictures were taken the 
second unit, and also a third one be- 
tween those shown here, have been 
completed. The forms of a fourth 
to the right of these will be ready 
for occupancy at the Homecoming 
game Saturday. 

The unit in the immediate fore- 
ground has been reserved for the K. 
U. rooters Saturday. 

Nearly 200 seats near the top of 
the unit at the left of the lower view, 
the middle of which is just opposite 
the center of the playing field, are 
reserved tor visiting newspapermen 
next Saturday. 

farming enterprise at a large increase 
in salary. Research and practical 
farming ability frequently do not go 
hand in hand, but it is evident that 
in Mr. Winchester's case they do. 

"It is worthy of remark that the 
college seeks these twofold qualities 
in the men it employs. They serve 
us splendidly while they remain here, 
but they are likely to leave becausfe 
of the greater financial remuneration 
offered elsewhere."

Jayhawkcr and IVildcat Score In Flrat 

Quarter, then Scatter Fur and 

Fenthera to a Draw for Three 

More Period* — Hnhn !■ Hero 

Oh the Wildcat and the Jayhawk Bird, 

They fought one awful fight. 
The fur and feathers flew about — 

It was a stirring sight. 
They cut and clawed and slashed and 

For one small pigskin ball. 
And when they reckoned up the score 

The count was seven all. 

Such Is the story of the great Kan- 
sas football classic of 1922. Thir- 
teen thousand football fans, parked 
any old place on Ahearn field that 
would afford the slightest squint at 
the gridiron, saw the struggle. And 
seeing was not all. They experienced 
every thrill known to modern foot- 
ball. It was not a particularly noisy 
or boisterous crowd, for the play was 
usually a little bit too intense for 

The old grads came home by the 
tens of hundreds. Many of them 
had not been back for a long time. 
One of the happy prodigals — with the 
best pair of Aggie lungs you ever 
heard — sat right next to the press 
box. It was his first Homecoming 
In 15 years and his first Aggie foot- 
ball game since the days of '06 and 
•07. But don't think he had lost an 
ounce of his Aggie fight, and don't 
think that he didn't appreciate the 
gameness of Bachman's warriors 
when they were under the shadow of 
their own goal holding Clark's charg- 
ing backs to gains that had to be 
measured in inches. Here's hoping 
that that loyal Aggie comes back 
many times to make up for what he's 
missed, and here's betting that he 


The Homecoming of 1922 made 
history for K. S. A. C. It set new 
standards not only in numbers but 
in spirit. It opened the eyes of the col- 
lege to the spirit and loyalty of 
the alumni and friends and it opened 
the eyes of the alumni and friends 
to the great growth and present needs 
of the college. It established the 
tradition of homecoming. Hereafter 
Manhattan must prepare to number 
its visitors in tens of thousands. 

And the K. U. jinx was battered 
and broken, and burled deep under 
the sod on Ahearn field. That was 
most satisfying of all. For the first 
time in the memory of faithful Ag- 
gie supporters the Wildcat got his 
share of the breaks. It was captain 
Ray Hahn who turned the trick. 
Early in the first quarter he leaped 
hlRh after one of "Prexy" Wilson's 
hurried passes, speared the pigskin 
from the dust choked air and tore 
75 yards down the field for a touch- 
down. It was the first important 
break the Aggies have had the pleas- 
ure of taking from the Jayhawkers 
in years. Exit the K. U. jinx. 


K. U. tied the score on a forward 
pass over the Aggie goal line. Both 
sides kicked goal. 

The game was replete with thrills. 
The terrific driving of McAdams and 
Burt of the Jayhawkers was good 
enough football to excite the admira- 
tion of the most frantic Aggie fol- 
lowers. The down state backs were 
invincible and unstoppable in mid- 
fielrt but when they got within the 
Dachman danger zone it was a case 
of an almost irresistible force suc- 
cumbing to the stubbornness of an 
entirely immovable wall. The Ag- 
gie line played the part of the Im- 
moviible wall. Three times it stayed 
off almost certain defeat. On one 
occasion the Kansas University ma- 

chine was unable to travel one wee 
yard In four full grown downs — a 
yard that would have meant a 
touchdown and victory. 

The Aggies were on the defensive 
most of the time. In midfleld their 
defense was considerably below Its 
own standard, but In the danger zone 
it was all that even a particular fel- 
low like Coach Bachman could ask 
for. The Wildcat offensive got un- 
der way once. In the fourth period 
an overhead attack carried the ball 
to the K. U. twenty-yard line. Things 
looked mighty fine for the Aggies 
and the visiting rooters from Law- 
rence grew suddenly concerned, but 
an intercepted pass soon stopped the 
rally and the midfleld successes of 
McAdams and Burt started again.

(ore Game 

The Kansas Aggies have passed 
the halfway mark of the 1922 foot- 
ball season with their defeat column 
clear. Next Saturday they will play 
their fifth game of the present sea- 
son with Missouri university at Co- 

While the Bachmanites have no de- 
feats marked against them, they 
have only two victories credited to 
them. Two of their games, those 
with Oklahoma and Kansas univer- 
sities, resulted in tie scores, 7 to 7 
In each case. Earlier In the season 
Washburn and Washington fell rath- 
er easy victims before the Wildcats. 
Despite the last two gruelling 
games through which the Aggies 
have gone — here with K. U. last Sat- 
urday and at Norman with the Soon- 
ers the Saturday before — they are in 
fair shape to meet the Tigers at Co- 

Axline, who starred in the Sooner 
game, was injured in the contest so 
severely that he was unable to play 
last Saturday. Possibly the two 
weeks' rest will enable him to go 
against the Missourians. Staib, right 
tackle, is probably out of the game 
for the rest of the season with a ser- 
ious injury to liis arm. 

The Aggie coaches are contemplat- 
ing a complete change of the right 
side of the line this week. They 
were not satisfied with its showing 
against the Jayhawkers last Satur- 
day. The change will put Sebring, 
right end, and Schindler, right guard, 
on the side line. Staib, right tackle, 
is included because of his injury. 

In the place of Sebring the coaches 
contemplate using Munn, a 
sophomore of promise. Ewing, an- 
other second year man, weighing 210 
pounds, is the most likely candidate 
for right tackle. Steiner, a one-let- 
ter man, probably will supercede 

It was around and over the right 
side of the line that K. U.'s longest 
gains were effected in the battle be- 
tween the Jayhawk and the Wildcat 
bore last week end. The coaches 
say the men on the right side of the 
line were loafing and that they can't 
loaf and hold their jobs. That the 
veteran Sebring and Schindler will 
lose out is regarded as extremely un- 
likely by 'Aggie fans, but the coaches 
declare that they are determined to 
change the lineup in the Missouri 

The history of the Aggie-Missouri 
gridiron engagements shows that 
Missouri has come off victor fewer 
times than the Aggies. In the last 
five contests, K. S. A. C. has won 
three times, twice by the score of 7 
to 6 and once 7 to 5. One of the last 
five games resulted in a 6 to 6 tie.

The annual meeting of the Kan- 
sas-Nebraska section of the Society 
for the Promotion of Engineering 
Education was held at the Kansas 
State Agricultural college Friday 
and Saturday of last week. The meet- 
ing was especially well attended, 
there being about 40 representatives 
from the University of Nebraska and 
Kansas university. 

The five year engineering course 
— what subjects should be added or 
extended to make It of greater value 
than the present four year course, 
was the topic for discussion at the 
session of the society held Friday 
evening. O. J. Ferguson, dean of the 
college of engineering at the Univer- 
sity of Nebraska and B. B. Brackett, 
professor of electrical engineering at 
the University of Nebraska, led the 
discussion. They were followed by 
representatives from the Kansas uni- 
versity and K. S. A. C. 


What should be done toward the 
training of young engineering In- 
structors, was the topic for the Sat- 
urday morning session. The discus- 
sion of the topic was led by repre- 
sentatives from the Kansas univer- 
sity. Prof. J. O. Hamilton and Prof. J. 
D. Walters were among the members 
from K. S. A. C. who took an Im- 
portant part in thir, discussion. 

No special recommendations were 
made by the faculty as a result of 
this meeting. The five year engi- 
neering course is, perhaps, the more 
important of the subjects discussed. 
There has been a growing feeling in 
various quarters that the five year 
engineering course is desirable. The 
purpose of the discussion of this 
topic was not to go on record as be- 
ing for or against such a course, but 
to correlate ideas, so that engineer- 
ing educators would be better pre- 
pared to map out such a course 
should the time arrive. 


A luncheon was given by the local 
faculty of the engineering division at 
the community house Saturday noon 
in honor of the visiting members. 
Sixty plates were served. The meet- 
ing adjourned at the close of the

The work of W. B. Balch, in 
charge of floriculture and vegetable 
gardening at K. S. A. C, was the sub- 
ject of comment in a recent number 
of the Florists' Exchange, the most

It was a great Homecoming. There 
were alumni and former students 
who return to their Alma Mater 
every year, and there were others 
who had not been back since gradua- 
tion. Whether they had been in the 
habit of coming often or seldom, 
they found interest and joy on the 
campus, on the football field, in the 

It was a great game. The mem- 
bers of the team showed the stuff of 
which they are made. No Aggie 
man or woman could fail to be proud 
of the fight they put up. With such 
spirit, the game with the university 
next year should result in an Aggie 
victory. The game last Saturday 
was a prediction of future victory. 

More important than the game, 
however, more important than any- 
thing else. Is the impression which 
returning Aggies got of their Alma 
Mater. They saw its rising build- 
ings, its growing student body, its 
increasing standards of scholarship, 
the spirit of the college family, stu- 
dents and faculty alike, the prestige 
which the institution has attained not 
only in the Missouri valley but 
throughout the United States. Every 
Aggie who came back tor Home- 
coming knows now, more surely than 
ever he knew before, that he is a 
graduate of a great college. 

But no loyal alumnus of the col- 
lege is content with that point which 
the institution has already reached. 
He knows that perfection is never at- 
tained. He knows also that every 
worhy institution is striving tow- 
ard perfection. He knows the power- 
ful effect of interest, support,honest 
criticism, in that direction. Home- 
coming has shown Aggie alumni 
what the college is, some measure 
of what it may become, and what the 
alumni and friends of the institution 
may do toward accomplishing its 
purposes and realizing its visions.

A Message to Agricultural Students 

Dean F. D. Farrell in the Kansas AoricuUural Student 

Most students go to college knowing several things 
which are not so. One of the commonest of these mis- 
conceptions is that the chief purpose of a college educa- 
tion is to enable its possessor to make more money. An- 
other is that a college degree is a license to live without 
working. A third is that colleges are maintained prim- 
arily for the benefit of their students rather than for 
the many times greater number of people who are not so 
fortunate, but who, nevertheless, pay more of the cost 
of keeping the colleges going. Some students are so un- 
fortunate as to carry one or more of these fallacious 
ideas through college, and a few graduates retain some 
of them throughout life. 

Colleges are maintained chiefly for the purpose of 
supplying the world with a thing of which It never has 
enough. That thing is capable leadership. Because it is 
always scarce and always in demand, leadership is high 
priced. It is more difficult to find a good foreman than 
it is to find men to work under him, and that is the 
only reason why the foreman receives the higher pay. 
Going to college helps a man to develop intellectual 
power, technical ability, and spiritual strength. These 
are the principal qualities of leadership. Students who 
develop these qualities to a high degree become leaders 
and subsequently are rewarded according to the character 
of the service they render. 

You agricultural students are preparing yourselves 
for positions of responsibility and leadetship, on the farm 
and elsewhere, in the service of the most important in- 
dustry in the world. Agriculture Is indispensable to 
civilization. It is the biggest business in America. Its 
progress is indispensable to the wellbelng of our coun- 
try. Like all other great industries, it must have a large 
number of capable leaders— men having broad vision, 
strong honest character, clean enthusiasm, and scientific 
ability; men who can do big diflicult things and who are 
not afraid to use imagination and to work. More and 
more the people engaged in agriculture must make use of 
the facts of science — in production, in distribution, and, 
most important of all, in country life. They cannot do 
this effectively without high class leadership. 

And here is where you chaps come in. The exist- 
ence of the agricultural college and your presence in it 
as agricultural students will be justified to the extent to 
which the college helps you, and you help yourselves, to 
become great Americans in the service of American ag- 

You need not be anxious about your rewards. If you 
give excellent service, remembering always that this re- 
quires hard work and, not Infrequently, hard fighting, 
you cannot escape the rewards, even if you try to do so.

Apples to eat and apple cider to 
drink! What a picture of cheer and 
contentment is brought to mind. The 
old home place; October and harvest 
over; the family gathered around 
the open fireplace after supper; 
Mother reading a tale of frontier life. 
Peace and rest after a day's work 
descend on the household. Before 
long, at a nod from Father, brother 
George quietly leaves the room and 
in a few minutes returns with a bas- 
ket of apples, Jonathan and Grimes, 
and a large pitcher of sweet cider. 
It was then that the real joy of the 
evening enveloped the family group, 
with health and happiness for pay. 
Bedtime was welcome and sleep was 
sweet. Such home life had much to 
do with the soundness and stability 
of our country. May the use of the 
apple again become universal. 

Who has not noted and marveled 
at the way of a boy with an apple! 
His hand clutches it; his teeth tear 
it; his molars slightly crush it and 
then an expression betokening the 
acme of earthly enjoyment spreads 
over his sunburned face as the full 
sense of the good that is being done 
him pervades his consciousness. To 
satisfy this desire for fruit he will do 
violence to almost any of his usual 
rules of conduct. He will beg and 
whine for it if in the pantry. He will 
forget his manners and grab for it If 
on the table. He will fight for it if 
in the hand of another boy, not too 
large. He will risk life and limb for 
it if on the top of a tall tree. And, 
he will steal it if in a neighbor's or- 
chard. Does this contain a lesson for 
parents in connection with the selec- 
tion of food for the children? 

When 100 food calories in bread 
cost 82 cents, salmon 5.95 cents, 
banana 3.26 cents, orange 5.84 cents 
the same amount of food value may 
be derived from apples for 1.72 cents. 

Kansas has produced many famous 
race horses. Robert McGregor, 
2:17 1-2; Myron McHenry, 2:15 1-2; 
Joe Patchen, 2:01 1-4, who was the 
sire of Dan Patch; and John R. 
Gentry, 2:00 1-4, were all Kansas 
born horses. 

It was voted by the board of re- 
gents that no greater pay than ten 
cents an hour be allowed any stu- 
dent unless regularly employed by 
the board; provided that this resolu- 
tion shall not apply to contracts al- 
ready entered into or made by im- 
plication for the present college year. 

Farm women enrolled in agricul- 
tural extension poultry clubs last year

used in the homes. 

If the relations between tenant 
and farm owner are cordial, neither 
side worries about a long term lease.

Three Missouri Valley conference 
games have been played by the Ag- 
gies; one a victory and two tied up 
at seven points each. That's step- 
ping. But keep your eye on the fin- 
al conference standing — the percent- 
ages at the close of the season. 
That's what marks the team's de- 
gree of success. 

No conference team has a harder 
valley schedule than the Aggies. 
Washington, Oklahoma, Kansas, Mis- 
souri, Ames, Nebraska, and half of 
them out of the way without a de- 
feat for the Aggies. Perhaps they 
won't win all of them — it may be 
too much to hope for. The thrill 
that comes to the home camp is in 
the way the Aggies fight. 

Take that situation Saturday in 
the game with K. U. The Jayhawks 
drove the ball up within two feet of 
the Aggies' goal for first down. 
Three more chances to shove It over. 
The Irresistible attack met an im- 
pregnable line. The goal was not 
crossed. The ball changed hands 
two feet from the line. 

Reads like fiction, doesn't it? But 
a crowd variously estimated at from 
10,000 to 15,000 saw the play and 
will vouch for the tale. That's the 
present day brand of Aggie fighting.

Rides Home on a Bareback Ford 

And so Charles C. McPherson, '22, 
came back for Homecoming riding on 
the back end of a little cut down 
"bug" Ford with his wife Vera 
Samuels McPherson, '19, and E. P. 
Stalcup, '22, riding in the front 

"A hundred and fifty miles on the 
back end of this little rascal is no 
joke," said McPherson as he climbed 
off the back end of the "whoople" 
and straightened himself out. "But 
you see the Mrs. didn't make up her 
mind to come until the last minute, 
and then it was up to me to sit on 
the back end and make room for 
her," finished Mac with his usual 
boom of good natured laughter. 

McPherson was the successful 
manager of the students' division of 
the stadium drive. As president of 
the Students' Self Governing associa- 
tion he was largely Instrumental in 
putting across the varsity activity fee 
which is helping materially to put 
Aggie intercollegiate activities on 
their feet. 

Down in Front! 

There were 200 seats in the K. U. 
section that were not bought by the 
K. U. people and were sold to Ag- 
gie grads at the last minute. 

Two hundred Aggies in the K. U. 
section added to the gaiety of na- 
tions. When the K. U. team was 
gaining the K. U. rooters would 
stand up and cheer and all the Ag- 
gies would yell: 

"Down in front! Down in front!" 

And when the Aggies made their 
gains and the Wildcat rooters stood, 
the K. U. bunch in its turn howled: 

"Down in front!" 

Time and again the Jayhawks, 
after the two weeks' rest their sched- 
ule provided, plunged deep Into the 
territory guarded by the boys who 
only the week before had withstood 
the fearful attack of the Oklahoma 
squad. And every time save one 
the goal was defended successfully. 

And remember. It was the Jay- 
hawks making the drive. Mystery- 
added to fiction! The Aggie team 
was in possession again of its own 
goat. Rumor has it that K. U. could 
not find Its own.

It is reported that Mike smiled 
when he heard the score. 

But the end of the season is not 
yet. The big boy of the conference 
is to be met at Lincoln. The Aggies 
have a real piece of work cut out for 
them before being privileged to lay 
aside their togs. 

The number of victories, after 
all, is not the mark of the season's 
success, nor is the final conference 
standing. The question is. How did 
they fight? The Aggie team is an- 
swering that to the satisfaction of 
the Aggies. 

Which reminds one that hundreds 
of alumni came home fur the day 
and the game. They milled and they 
mixed, but register them? One 
could not. They knew no more about 
registry than a bunch of mavericks. 
They were a jolly bunch of pepsters, 
bubbling over with the old Aggie 
spirit. And they're going to build 
that stadium. 

The crowd of 10,000 to 15,000 — 
whatever the correct number may 
be — opened the eyes of that many 
thousand to the need for the whole 
stadium. The folks must have a 
place to sit when they come home. 
Three constructional units of the 
stadium were in use, just enough to 
whet the alumni appetite for all. 
And the alumni have vowed a vow. 
But more of that later.

to complete the building of the mem- 
orial stadium. He is succeeded by 
George A. Montgomery. 

"The management of this news- 
paper regrets to lose Mr. Salisbury 
and desires to make acknowledge- 
ment of his valuable services," the 
Chronicle commented editorially. 
"He is an exceptionally good news- 
paper man and we predict for him 
an honorable and useful career." 

K. C. Alumni to Fete Aggie l?eam 

Alumni of Greater Kansas City got 
together for supper October 26 at the 
Linwood Boulevard Methodist church 
to discuss measures for a suc- 
cessful stadium campaign in their 
city. Word went out that a half 
million dollars was the price of the 
memorial stadium, and Kansas City 
is ready to raise its quota. A com- 
mittee to survey the prospects was 
authorized at this preliminary meet- 
ing, and J. H. Anderson, '12, presi- 
dent of the Kansas City, Mo., alum- 
ni, took the matter of appointments 
under advisement. 

It was the desire of the alumni, ex- 
pressed at the meeting, that both cit- 
ies work as one and that H. J. Wat- 
ex"s, former president of K. S. A. C, 
head the campaign. 

Upon learning that the Aggie foot- 
ball team would be in Kansas City 
November 2 on its way to meet 
Missouri, the alumni began prepara- 
tions for a reception and supper. The 
team will be met at the union sta- 
tion by Aggies with motor cars and 
escorted over Kansas City boulevards 
and then to the Ivanhoe Masonic 
temple for a reception and dinner. 
Preparations are in charge of C. A. 
Patterson, '14, Wyandotte county 
agent. H. C. Rushmore, '79, dean of 
Aggie alumni, is in charge of the din- 
ner. Mike Ahearn, director of ath- 
letics, who will accompany the team, 
will make the oration. 

While the Aggies are at the din- 
ner table Prof. H. W. Davis of the 
English department, the "H. W. D." 
of The Industrialist Sunflower 
column, will tell the world of Aggie 
stadium plans through the courtesy 
of the Kansas City Star. His speech 
will be broadcast by radio from the 
Star's studio as a part of the educa- 
tional program between 6 and 7 
o'clock, and will be picked up and 
reproduced over a loud speaker at 
the dinner table. 

Mr. Rushmore's daughter gave a 
musical program at the supper. Oley 
W. Weaver, alumni executive secre- 
tary, talked over stadium plans with 
the 50 alumni who attended. 

C. A. Frankenhoff, '18, and Mrs. 
Frankenhoff, Philadelphia, announce 
tlie birth August 24 of a son whom 
they have named Charles. 

Legs Fractured, Drives to Game 

With both legs in a plaster cast,

miles to see the Aggie-K. U. game. 
His legs were held up by a blanket, 
and he operated the foot brakes of 
his Ford car with his hands.

"We did not have a great deal of 
time at this meeting," writes one of 
the alumni, "but we sure made time 
count while we were there. I can 
say for all that attended that they 
had a good time and we got back

"Well, we sure made a killing to- 
day, even if we didn't pick that Jay- 
bird," said an old grad as he slapped 
his companion on the back after the 
K. U. game Saturday. 

"Humph, how do you figure?" 
asked grad number two, "K. U. even- 
ed the score." 

"We surely did knock that old 
Jinx cold, anyway. Why, look at 
the spirit man, can you beat it? 
Those Aggie warriors went into that 
game as though they meant to fight 
— not with the old spirit of 'This is 
K. U., we might as well quit right 

"Guess you're right there, but I 
wanted to see a win. I was disap- 

"If you had seen those boys play 
at Oklahoma and had seen them get 
laid out and crippled up, one after 
another, you would be tickled green 
to think that we held the ancient 
foe to a tie." 

"All right, all right, old man! 
Don't get up on your ear about it. 
We'll come back for the massacre 
next year, and I'm darned glad we 
weren't beaten." 

This little bit of conversation, 
overheard after the game Saturday, 
expresses the consensus both of the 
alumni and of the student hody. 
Even though the Wildcats did not 
treat the Jayhawks to the score that 
all boosters for K. S. A. C. were 
anticipating, most of the spectators 
breathed a sigh of relief when the 
final whistle sounded. 

They wildly shout "On to Neb-

Annnal Event of Potato Growers to Be 

Held at Topeka November 8, 9, and 

10 — Noted Spedallat* Invited to 

Appear on ProBram 

Entries to be made In the Second 
Annual Potato show at Topeka Nov- 
ember 8, 9, and 10 indicate that the 
show will be twice as large as the 
one held last year In Kansas City. 
The samples of Kansas grown pota- 
toes entered last year made a poor 
showing when compared with the 
same varieties grown in South Dako- 
ta, Minnesota, or Wisconsin. The 
poor showing of last year has acted 
as a stimulant to the Kansas growers 
and has caused them to select and 
store their samples more carefully. 

Besides a large display of Kansas 
grown potatoes there will be a dis- 
play of different varieties from other 
states. There will also be a large 
exhibit of Kansas grown sweet po- 
tatoes. The exhibits will be judged 
on the second day of the show and 
the prizes and ribbons will be award- 
ed at that time. Prizes are being 
offered for the best results ob- 
tained in tests which have been made 
In controlling diseases and of treat- 
ing seed. 


An extensive three days' education- 
al program has been partially ar- 
ranged. A number of noted special- 
ists have been Invited, among whom 
are Wm. Stuart, horticultural and 
potato expert of the United States 
department of agriculture; Dr. H. H. 
Harte, authority on sweet potatoes, 
United States department of agri- 
culture; A. G. Tolas of the University 
of Minnesota, chief inspector of reg- 
istered potato seed for the state; 
and L. Sweet of Colorado who is 
known for his work in potato 
Improvement and production. Prof. 
G. W. Brann of the University of 
Wisconsin will be one of the judges. 
Representatives from the various 
railroads and from the large com- 
mission companies at St. Louis, Chi- 
cago, and Denver will be at the show. 
Speakers representing most of the po- 
tato growing counties of Kansas will 
be on the program. 


Reports of progress on experiment- 
al work will be given by the grow- 
ers from the various parts of the 
state concerning the results of the 
cooperative experiments dealing with 
seed treatment, spraying, and var- 
iety yields. An extensive exhibit of 
the most common and important 
plant diseases attacking the potato, 
artifical cultures of the organism 
producing these diseases, and num- 
erous charts showing the results of 
control measures will be on display. 

Stark was unable to show 
usual speed, due to Injuries. 

Kansas' oft tackle play from their 
punt formation was their best ground 
gainer. It Is a very strong play and 
the Aggie forwards were unable to 
solve it. The Aggie backs took care 
of the passes pretty well, except one 
which went through for a touchdown. 
It was tipped by an Aggie back but 
not enough to stop the Impetus of 
the ball. More Jinx — K. U. scores 
on a pass that should have been 
knocked down.

K. S, 


The Aggie line proved Its super- 
iority over the Kansas line on the 
one yard line. Isn't that a good 
place to prove It? 

C. E. McBride, sports editor for 
the Kansas City Star and referee of 
the game, is a splendid official. He 
is quick to see things and sees lots 
of them. He makes the game fast 
and keeps a good feeling between 
the two teams. 

The Kansas ends were mussing our 
forward passes. The center also was 
spoiling our off tackle play. "This 
will be stopped," says Mr. Bachman. 

Marlon Stauffer, tackle on last 
year's team, Is recovering from a 
severe Illness and Is now able to 
write. The team of this year misses 
Stauffer and the confidence he put 
in his team mates. We hope he'll be 
able to be with us next fall. 

Coach Bachman has a blue suit. 
Maybe you have noticed it. When 
he has worn this suit to games he 
has never lost. He had it on last 
Saturday. We cannot name the 
brand for It might embarrass the 
coach, and again the writer would 
be charged for advertising space. 

Burt, fullback for Kansas, played 
high school football with Susie Sears 
at Eureka. Burt planned to attend 
school here until K. U. coaches took 
a trip to interview him. Which il- 
lustrates the point that in order to 
get good athletes it is often necessary 

to go after them.

Referring to the demands which 
led up to the revival of the war fi- 
nance corporation and which resulted 
in providing for agricultural repre- 
sentation on the federal reserve 
board. Secretary of Agriculture Wal- 
lace, speaking on the agricultural 
situation at student assembly Thurs- 
day, said: 

"During the winter of 1920-21 
and the following spring, there was 
a persistent demand by the farmers 
that the activities of the war fi- 
nance corporation be extended and 
that agricultural representation 
should be added to the federal re- 
serve board. The experience of the 
year preceding convinced the farm- 
ers that agriculture was not being 
fully considered in the administra- 
tion of our larger credit machinery, 
especially by the federal reserve 
board. They were convinced that the 
effect of some of the policies of the 
board was to depress prices of farm 
products. They knew that the board 
had helped inflate prices and they 
felt that it had a good deal to do with 
deflating farm prices. 


"Congress heeded the demands of 
the farmers and in August, 1921, en- 
larged the activities of the war fi- 
nance corporation, and larter pro- 
vided for agricultural representation 
on the federal reserve board. The 
story of the war finance corporation 
is interesting. It was created origin- 
ally to help finance exports. In the 
spring of 1920 the secretary of the 
treasury suspended its activities. 
When farm prices began to crumble 
later in the year efforts were made to 
persuade the administration to re- 
vive the corporation, but without 
success, these efforts being de- 
nounced as agitation to maintain 

"When congress met In Decem- 
ber it promptly passed a resolu- 
tion directing the secretary of the 
treasury to revive the War Finance 
corporation. This resolution was op- 
posed by the secretary and when 
passed it was vetoed by President 
Wilson. Congress promptly passed 
the resolution over the president's 
veto, but the corporation did not 
function actively until the new ad- 
ministration came in in March, 1921. 
Later in the summer congress author- 
ized the corporation to carry finan- 
cial help directly to domestic agri- 
culture. This help was given through 
the banks. It had to be. There was 
not time to set up the machinery for 
loaning to individuals. Banks in 
agricultural states were overloaded 
with farmers' notes which could not 
be paid without great sacrifice. 


"The war finance corporation took 
these notes from the banks as collat- 
eral tor loans. This relieved the banks, 
enabled them to carry their farmer 
customers and to loan more freely. 
Within a few months 7,000 loans 
were made to banks in agricultural 
states, amounting to more than 
$200,000,000. Eighty-tour million 
dollars was loaned direct to livestock 
companies and banks upon livestock 
security and $64,000,000 was loaned 
direct to farmers' cooperative mar- 
keting associations. 

"Some people seem to think that 
the farmers are trying to arrange 
things so they can borrow money 
more freely than they should. They 
are wrong in this. What the farmer 
wants more than anything else just 
now is to pay ott his debts instead of 
going deeper in debt. He wants bet- 
ter prices for his farm products so he 
can pay his debts more easily, and 
he has a right to demand that our 
national credit machinery be so ad- 
ministered as to give agriculture a 
square deal. He has a right to de- 

Alumnl Heroca Fight for Vievr of K. 
. . Game ^Vhlch AKKle Tradition 
Almoat Obliteratea 

The sport writers did yeoman ser- 
vice at the Homecoming game last 
Saturday, but there was one event 
they all forgot to mention. That was 
the civil war down on the sidelines 
between an old Aggie tradition and 
two Aggie heroes. 

Caroll Walker, end on the famous 
team that scored against K. U. back 
in 1906, and Carl Mallon, '07, Mike's 
all Aggie left half back, and the man 
who made the famous touchdown 
against K. U. In 1906, had been 
placed by the reception committee 
just where they should have been — 
down In the seat of honor along the 
sidelines, where they could watch the 
game in true alumni style. 

But in picking out a place of van- 
tage the reception committee forgot 
to take Into the reckoning Colonel 
Brady, K. S. A. C.'s grand old man. 
Now for a tradition the grand old 
man is a pretty concrete affair. In 
fact, that Is just what caused the 
schism. Colonel Brady is a well In- 
tentloned tradition, but he is more 
apt than not to forget now and again 
his materialistic proportions. 

This seemed to be the case last 
Saturday, for just after the heroes 
had been seated advantageously the 
tradition walked up and proceeded 
dexterously to obliterate nine tenths 
of the gridiron for them. And there 
the matter stood (or, rather, sat) 
for a moment. Heroes, you see, are 
heroes; and, yet, on the other hand, 
a tradition is a tradition — especially 
in the case of the grand old man. 

Presently, however, the heroes de- 
cided to apply a jot of humor to the 
situation. Innumerable were the 
pointed jibes directed toward the ele- 
phantine tradition; countless were 
the insinuations that something 
especially definite was keeping the 
heroes from getting all to which 
their eminence entitled them. But 
the tradition was intent upon the 
game, and the jibes and the insinua- 
tions rolled unheeded off his back. 

And thus it was that matters came 
to a head, as the historians say. Sud- 
denly the tradition rose enthusias- 
tically from his stool to cheer on the 
hard pressed Wildcats. The heroes, 
being incapacitated for seeing any- 
thing to make them enthusiastic, and 
having had their entire attention di- 
rected toward the grand old man, 
immediately heard opportunity 
knocking and answered the call by 
appropriating the stool. 

The descent of Colonel Brady was 
altogether too hard on the dignity of 
the grand old man, and he turned, 
snarling as only a grand old man can 
snarl. He found the heroes in hot 
strife; Mallon believing that Walk- 
er, who had taken the stool, was 
about to return it, and being firmly 
resolved that the only place for the 
dais was over the fence and out of 
the tradition's reach. Only a futur- 
ist could describe the next few mo- 
ments. The insulted tradition, besides 
being insulted, loves a fight as only 
a tradition can, and at once joined in 
the battle. In the course of the mil- 
itary operations he was slapped. Be- 
ing slapped is too much for any tra- 
dition, much less one that is a grand 
old man, and Colonel Brady threw 
his entire energy into a terrific of- 

That wholesale anarchy would 
have resulted but for the kindly and 
timely mediation of A. A. (Doc) 
Holtz, y. M. C. A. secretary, is cer- 
tain. At any rate the shadows of a 
dim past threw the struggle out on 
the field into a deep dark shade for 
a number of interesting moments, 
and the tradition could be seen tuck- 
ing a new war lock into his bonnet 
as he again resumed his seat in front 
of the heroes.

Boga — Davia on Thnraday with Sta- 
dium am Subject — Farrell, Diclt- 
ena. Burr, and Call Later 

Kansas State Agricultural college 
faculty members are to appear on 
the Kansas City Star's radio pro- 
gram during the next few weeks, 
the series having started last week 
with an address by George A. Dean, 
professor of entomology. Professor 
Dean talked on "Controlling the 
Chinch Bug." P. D. Farrell, dean of 
agriculture, will appear on the pro- 
gram in the near future. He will 
speak on "What the Farmer Needs." 
Others who will give addresses are L. 
E. Call, professor of agronomy; Al- 
bert Dickens, professor of horticul- 
ture; and Walter Burr, professor of 

H. W. Davis, professor of English, 
will appear on the Star's radio pro- 
gram Thursday night of this week. 
He will talk about the Aggie Mem- 
orial stadium. 

Professor Dean's address, in part, 
was as follows: 


"Half a day's work on every farm 
in this part of the country may save 
$15,000,000 worth of crops in a state. 
Chinch bugs are threatening Kansas, 
Missouri, Nebraska, and Oklahoma. 
Considerable damage was caused 
last summer. The bugs have now gone 
into their winter quarters. This has 
been discovered by surveys made by 
county agents and Investigators at 
the agricultural colleges and experi- 
ment stations. 

"The chinch bug Is the most seri- 
ous insect attacking corn, oats, rye, 
barley, and the sorghums. With the 
exception of the Hessian fly it is the 
worst insect attacking wheat. On an 
average it destroys, in the United 
States, crops amounting to $40,000,- 
000 per annum. In 1910 it destroyed 
$15,000,000 worth of crops in Kan- 
sas. It repeated this damage in 1912. 
Missouri, Nebraska, and Oklahoma 
have experienced similiar losses. 
Conditions are ripe now for a repeti- 
tion of this damage. 


"This is the time of the year to 
start work against the chinch bug. 
•Right at this time, during the fall 
and early winter when the bugs are 
in hibernation, the insects can be 
systematically destroyed. On the 
average farm half a day's effort, with 
almost no expense, is sufficient. 
When all the farmers in a township 
or county get together and conduct 
such an early campaign there is 
ample protection for next year's 
wheat, oats, rye, corn, and sorghums. 
The bugs attack these crops particu- 
larly. Summer control measures are 
much more difficult and expensive. 
They are unnecessary, however, If 
the fall campaign has been carried 
out effectively. 

"Where the bugs have caused in- 
jury during the past season, 98 per 
cent of them will be found this fall 
hibernating in the clump-forming 
grasses, such as bunch grass and 
bluestem growing in meadows, pas- 
tures, ravines, waste places, and road- 
sides. Where these bug-infested 
areas arq systematically burned in 
the fall the chinch bug problem Is 
solved for the ensuing year." 

Potatoes stored under proper con- 
ditions should not sustain a loss in 
storage of more than 5 per cent, but 
under poor conditions the loss may 

be as high as 20 per cent. 


Hens must be in good flesh if 
they are to become good winter lay- 
ers. Feeding a good dry mash sup- 
plemented with a limited amount of 
fresh meat will give the hens a 
reserve of fat. 

Concrete feeding floors for hogs 
should be five inches thick and 
should have a concrete apron around 
the edge, extending deep enough into 
the ground that the hog wallows 
will not undermine the floor.

Team Finds Ituelt In 8m»»hln« Offen- 

■Ive Which Turn* Back HUaonrt 14 

to 10 — Brilliant Aerial Attaek 

Reaponalble tor Victory 

The Aggie Wildcats returned 
Sunday from Missouri university 
with the "lost" column in their per- 
centage sheet still filled with an 0. 
In their best played game of the sea- 
son they defeated the Tigers 14 to 10. 
Early in the second quarter the line 
ripped open a hole for Sears to 
plunge through for a touchdown af- 
ter a period of brilliant slashing foot- 
ball by the whole team. In the last 
session Stark went over for another 
after a fast bit of bewildering aerial 
work. Sebring kicked both goals. 

The Missouri team, or rather Mr. 
Lincoln, halfback, made the Tigers' 
10 in the third quarter. Lincoln 
made most of the yardage, made the 
touchdown for six points, kicked goal 
for another, and later contributed a 
kick from placement for the remain- 
der of the 10. His slashing runs 
made things look bad for the Aggies. 


But the Aggies came back in the 
final turn and amazed both Tigers 
and rooters by their brilliant forward 
passing. Once they lost the ball on 
Missouri's four yard line. After the 
punt they started in and worked 
back again and went over before 
anybody realized what had happened. 
When the whistle blew they were 
almost over again. 

The victory over Missouri marks 
the two-thirds point in the Missouri 
valley race. The Wildcats have won 
two and tied two. Each game they 
have played has been a wln-it-or-die 
struggle for their opponents. Wash- 
ington, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Mis- 
souri have each felt it necessary to 
beat the Aggies to save their self- 
respect and preserve their reputa- 
tions at home and abroad. 


It has been the stiffest schedule 
any team has been up against in the 
Valley so far, and with Ames coming 
next Saturday and the husky Husk- 
ers in the ofllng It does not seem to 
be losing any of Its stiffness. Ames 
must beat us to save itself from dis- 
aster and Nebraska must beat us to 
keep its record clear. 

Never before have the Aggies had 
a harder schedule and still that 
"lost" column is empty. With a vic- 
tory over Ames Saturday they will 
have something big to fight Nebraska 


The Aggie offensive was at work 
with the bits in its teeth down at 
Columbia. The men had all fully 
recovered from the bone crushing 
struggle at Oklahoma and were up 
on their toes fighting. "Tom" Se- 
bring was back with his old time 
punch and Swartz at quarter showed 
the best generalship of his career. 
Sears, Stark, Harter, and Lasswell 
were also going good. Indeed, the 
whole team seemed to find them- 
selves all together for the first time 
this season. 

Aggie rooters are consequently 
clamoring more and more insistently 
for the preservation of that hole in 
the red side of the ledger. Aggie al- 
umni who can come home again next 
Saturday and be in Lincoln on No- 
vember 18 are hereby warned that 
they will miss something if they

Lincoln of Missouri is an excel- 
lent player, especially a good ball 

lugger. But his passing didn't get 
over last Saturday. He tried to pass 
a couple of times but the Aggies 
downed him while he was trying to 
pick his man. 

It was a game between a line 
smashing club and an open football

It certainly took a hard hearted 
person to look into the eyes of the 11 
Missouri players who were crying and 
then call a pass time after time, all 
for good gains. The Missouri team 
was dumb in the face of Aggie passes. 

The Mlssourians were contented 
that the better team won. They said 
that the Aggies were the best coached 
team they had seen. 



"No team in the valley can stop 
those passes," said the Tiger backs 
after the game. 

The Wildcats should have scored 
another touchdown and possibly two. 
Sebring just barely missed a pass 
from Stark, when the latter was be- 
hind the goal line. The pilot was 
carried out of bounds on the three 
inch line. Now isn't that the berries? 

The headlinesman got balled up on 
his downs and gave Missouri the 
ball after the Aggies had had but 
three downs. We were on Missouri's 
five yard line and the next play 
would have meant a touchdown. It 
was reported that Stark fumbled but 
It was a mistake. The press box 
couldn't figure how* else Missouri 
could have got possession of tl^ 

In a closer game this decision 
woulii have been a costly error to 
the Aggies. 

The Aggies received about 100 
telegrams from folks in Manhattan. 
These sure instill vim and fight into 
the team. 

The Missouri players and rooters 
are certainly a fine bunch of clean 
sports. The Missouri game was one 
of the cleanest the Aggies have play- 
ed In this year.

Good Attendance For Openlnar Number 

That the Criterion Male quartet, 
which is booked to present the open- 
ing number of the enlarged Artists 
series program here tonight will 
play to a well filled house Is 
assured, according to an announce- 
ment by the management. The seat 
sale late Saturday evening was con- 
siderably in excess of the amount 
disposed of at the same time last 
year and the rush with which the 
sale picked up yesterday Indicates 
that the record is going to be estab- 

The program which will be pre- 
sented by the male quartet was also 
announced yesterday by Prof. Ira 
Pratt. It promises to be an unusual 
entertainment. The program is wide- 
ly varied and arranged to appeal to 
all classes of people and ranges all 
the way from the most difficult class- 
ical selections to popular numbers.

deals with the history of the potato 
improvement work that has been car-

two years. The circular is the result 
of demonstrations and experiments 
on seed treatment, spraying and soil

City Program 

The fact that on a recent day every 
shipment of hogs received at a mid- 
western terminal market was from a 
cooperative shipping association Is 
one of the reasons why the two day 
short course for livestock shipping 
association managers in Kansas City 
today and tomorrow is important, ac- 
cording to the committee in charge. 

The short course is for managers, 
officials, and members of livestock 
shipping associations in Kansas, Neb- 
raska, and Missouri. It is under the 
direction of the agricultural exten- 
sion services of these three states 
and the United States bureau of ag-

Monday to all the faculty announc- 
ing the drive. 

Miss Ruth Trail, vice-president of 
the board, has charge of the cam- 
paign, and Dean Van Zile, Miss Mary 
Worcester and Miss Margaret Ed-

these four members of the board has 
six other faculty women helping with 
the drive. 

Plans had been made to begin the

Encllah Department Head Givea Ad> 

dreaa on Stadium — Dean of Agrl- 

cnltnre Haa Subject of "What 

the Farmer Needs" 

Two members of the K.S.A.C. fac- 
ulty delivered addresses which were 
broadcasted by radio by the Kansas 
City Star last week. Prof. H. W. 
Davis, head of the English depart- 
ment, talked Thursday night about 
the K. S. A. C. memorial stadium, 
announcing that a drive will be car- 
ried to alumni and friends of the col- 
lege In the near future to complete 
the structure. P. D. Farrell, dean 
of agriculture, spoke Saturday night 
on the subject of "What the Farm- 
er Needs." 

Prof. Albert Dickens, head of the 
department of horticulture, will 
speak on "Improving the Home 
Place" Friday night of this week. 


Professor Davis' address, part of 
which follows, emphasized the mem- 
orial features of the stadium: 

"The memorial stadium now being 
erected at Kansas State Agricultural 
college Is Intended primarily to com- 
memorate the sacrifices made by hun- 
dreds of K. S. A. C. boys and men 
during the world war. Many of 
these gave their lives, many others 
surrendered health and comfort for 
the rest of their days, all gave up 
peaceful homes for the rigors of war. 
A feeling that this sacrifice must 
never be forgotten, that gratitude 
should be expressed in a memorial ac- 
ceptable and beneficial to young life 
— for the sacrifice was largely of 
young life — has crystallized in the 
movement to build a stadium with 
funds provided by those whose sense 
of gratitude impels them to the giv- 
ing of those funds. 

"Within a very short time the 
3,000 alumni and the many hundreds 
of friends of K. S. A. C. will be 
given an opportunity to make their 
offerings for the memorial stadium. 
Three hundred thousand dollars is 
needed to complete the structure and 
enable it to render the truly big ser- 
vice planned for It. It is not merely 
a place for the seating of crowds who 
come to witness intercollegiate ath- 
letic contests, although that one pur- 
pose might well justify its erection in 
these days of insistence upon whole- 
some outdoor Intercollegiate sports. 


"The new stadium will make pos- 
sible the development of intramural 
athletics until every young man and 
woman can be given the privilege of 
taking part in his favorite form of 
recreation. No gymnasium could 
possibly provide facilities that would 
make this work attractive or profit- 
able, for America insists upon out- 
door, competitive team games that 
teach cooperation and respect for 
regulation. Nothing but a complete- 
ly utilized stadium can make this 
program possible in an institution 
the size of the agricultural college. 

"The memorial stadium is also to 
be a home for community drama and 
pageantry. It will provide a place 
for May-day celebrations and season- 
al festivals of all kinds. Such group 
activities are now being stimulated 
and fostered by the college. It is es- 
sential that a proper setting be pro- 
vided for them. They give a train- 
ing in community endeavor that is 
both attractive and educative. The 
stadium will also make possible the 
development of agricultural and in- 
dutrial fairs.

college takes hope from the succes-

"You cannot break the laws of 
nature and not be punished," said 
the barber, sententiously and fat- 

"You cannot break the laws of 
nature at all," said his customer 
through a mouthful of lather. 

"You can break a law of the state," 
continued his customer. "You may 
be fined or imprisoned for doing so, 
but that does not affect the fact that 
you broke the law. 

"You cannot break the laws of na- 
ture. There is no such thing as 
breaking the laws of nature. People 
who talk about being punished for 
breaking a law of nature do not 
know what they are talking about. 
They do not know what a law of na- 
ture is. 

"Anyone who talks about breaking 
the laws of nature thinks of these 
laws as corresponding to laws by a 
legislative body. He harks back to 
the metaphysical and political bunk 
common a century or so ago. 

"Laws of nature have no resem- 
blance to laws passed by any legis- 
lative body or imposed by any ruler. 
They are not a set of neatly codified 
enactments made by the Creator, who 
exacts a likewise neatly codified pen- 
alty when his laws are broken. The 
laws of nature are simply statements 
of the uniform way in which natural 
events occur under given conditions. 
If a supposed law of nature is brok- 
en, it means that it is not a law. 
If an apple sometime remains sus- 
pended in the air without support, 
it will not mean that the apple has 
broken the law of gravitation and 
therefore will be punished by Al- 
mighty God according to the penalty 
that he has set down for breaking 
the law of gravitation. It will mean 
simply that the supposed law of grav- 
itation is no law, or that it at least 
requires modification before being 
accepted. A scientific law Is simply 
a statement of the unvarying truth 
about natural phenomena. 

"Misunderstanding of the distinc- 
tion between the laws of nature and 
the laws of organized government Is 
responsible for much of the hazy and 
downright ridiculous thinking on 
both political and scientific subjects 
It is responsible for the failure to 
understand the function of science. 
It is responsible for the absurdly 
great confidence expressed in the 
ability of humanly enacted laws to 
approximate the human race to per- 
fection. It is responsible for scores 
of other silly fallacies." 

"Yes," said the barber, "I agree 
with you — you can't break the laws 
of nature and get away with it, can 
you? Now how about a nice mas-

In order to give the students a 
chance to see the Manhattan trade 
carnival, which is developing into a 
big, well advertised affair, the facul- 
ty have expedited all the work of this 
week one day, thus placing the "oft 
day" at the close instead of at the 
beginning of the week. All exercises 
are included In the change, too, ex- 
cept the faculty conference on Tues- 
day afternoon, the meeting of the 
farmers' club on Friday evening, and 
of the societies on Saturday evening. 

At their last meeting the board of 
regents requested the faculty to 
formulate drafts of three courses of 
study — a farmers' course, a mechan- 
ics' course, and a general course, for 
the coming year. The faculty have 
been busy this week with a dlscus- 
of the subject, but the conclusion Is 

Perhaps the car to the right has

"It's unfair to say that women give 
away secrets," sagely observes the 
Washington Palladium. "They don't 
any such thing. They always swap 
them for other secrets." 

The Atchison Globe is responsible 
for the following hot shot: " 'What 
makes the modern girl gad around so 
much?' a reformer asked. And a 
frank man nearly snorted, 'She's 
hunting her mother.' " 

Marriage with no bank account is 
like buying a high priced car on pay- 
ments. The darn thing will likely

all cancelled. — Barnard Bee.

The Ne^ro and Farm Land 

Dr. Robert JR. Moton. Principal oftht Tuikeoee 
Normal and Industrial Irutitute 

In the 60 years that have followed since emancipation, 
negroes In America have come into the possession of 
22,000,000 acres, better comprehended as an area greater 
than Scotland. The greater part of these holdings Is In 
farm lands, of which the vast proportion are found In the 
southern states. It Is a matter of common knowledge that 
the great bulk of the negro population In America Is lo- 
cated In the 13 southern states. Within recent years, large 
numbers have migrated from the south into the industrial 
centers of the north, but It Is still true, and will in all 
probability remain true throughout the history of the na- 
tion, that the negro population will remain greatest In 
these southern states and the same section will be, as it 
is today, the scene of the negro's greatest development. 
It was one of the fundamental teachings of the late Dr. 
Booker T. Washington, one that he took every opportun- 
ity to impress upon his people; that the starting point In 
the development of any race or any nation Is in the soil, 
and that to obtain a permanent place In American civili- 
zation, the negro must secure a firm foothold upon the 
land. Some of the response which the race has made to 
this teaching may be seen in the fact that in the last 
half century since their emancipation, negroes in the 
United States have added over $1,000,000,000 worth of 
property and are now increasing their holdings at the 
rate of $50,000,000 per year. It Is a remarkable and 
striking fact that during the recent world war when the 
rate of Increase In property showed a general decline that 
the acreage of property owned by negroes increased. It 
Is still more Interesting to observe that these figures rep- 
resent land that Is under cultivation representing as It 
does a large number of small holdings rather than the 
accumulated possessions of a few great property holders, 
and there is great promise for the future in the fact that 
our American government is lending its aid through ag- 
ricultural demonstration agencies in every state to in- 
struct these negro farmers as well as others in the best 
methods of cultivating the soil and the pursuit of agri- 
culture In general.

matron tell the truth and ask that 
the matter be kept quiet for a few 
days? She does not. She pretends 
surprise and denies there is any foun- 
dation f-or the rumor. The following 
week the announcement Is made and 
— the society editor knows the wo- 
man has prevaricated. 

So It goes on down the line. Peo- 
ple who would not think of deceiving 
business associates, people who 
would scorn to resort to untruth or 
subterfuge in ordinary affairs, men 
and women whose word literally is 
as good as their bond in financial 
matters, these are the people, for 
the most part, who have no compunc- 
tions of conscience about deliberately 
lying to a newspaper representative.

The packers at large packing cen- 
ters have adopted a rule that they 
will pay ten cents per hundred above 
market price for all hogs originating 
in territory from which cattle tuber- 
culosis has been eradicated. They 
have taken this step because it Is 
recognized that wherever cattle tu- 
berculosis Is prevalant, there also 
tuberculosis of swine is common. 
The packers stand the loss if hogs 
after slaughter are condemned on ac- 
count of the disease, and therefore if 
hogs are comparatively free from dis- 
ease they can afford to pay a prem- 
ium for them.

Although at least a thousand al-

for Homecoming, but 125 registered 
at the alumni headquarters. From 
the register and from lists sent in 
by fraternities and sororities, the 
names which follow were obtained. 
The remainder of the Homecomers 
doubtless experienced as many thrills 
as did those whose names are given 
but they failed to answer roll call. 

A pleasant time was had by all 
at the annual party for sons and 
daughters of K. S. A. C. Scores who 
have not visited their Alma Mater 
since they were graduated imbibed 
once more the spirit of loyalty, and 
found to their satisfaction that the 
Aggies fight as gallantly as they 
ever did. Other scores who have 
been coming back for every Home- 
coming saw the Wildcats pluck more 
feathers from the Jayhawk than at 
any time since 1916.

something. They may get confirma-

Hear Stadium Talka by Water*. Abeam, 
Bachman, and Davta — Sqnad Geta 
BIk Sendoff 

Aggies of '79 to '25 gathered in 
Kansas City November 2 for a pre- 
celebration of the Tiger tall twisting 
which took place as scheduled at 
Columbia, Mo., two days later. One 
hundred and twenty-five alumni and 
former students welcomed the 
24 members of the football squad, 
the coaches, and Mike Ahearn, and 
participated in an old fashioned 
pep meeting. 

Dr. H. J. Waters, former president 
of K. S. A. C, was the first speaker. 
He avowed his loyalty to the Purple, 
even in the athletic contests with his 
Alma Mater, Missouri, and urged the 
support of a united alUmni for the 
Aggies. He reviewed for his hearers 
the meteoric rise of the Aggie teams 
in the conference and predicted an 
even better record in the future. 

Oley W. Weaver, executive secre- 
tary, explained that the alumni as- 
sociation has a large and a worthy 
task to accomplish. 

"Athletics is not the sole end and 
aim of the alumni association," he 
declared. "The stadium proposition 
has been given the endorsement of 
the association as the most pressing 
need of the college, but back of that 
proposition are others which we must 
put across, each in its turn." 

Charles W. Bachman, head coach, 
gave his usual forceful 100-word "ad- 

"We have played three conference 
games this year and still have a per- 
centage of 1,000," he told the grads. 
"We need that stadium completed. 
If you folks will do your part the 
team will do the rest." 

Mike Ahearn — just plain "Mike" to 
the old timers as he is to every mem- 
ber of the present student body — 
"talked turkey" to the men and wom- 
en of Greater Kansas City about the 
stadium. He told them simply and 
directly why the stadium is the prime 
need of the college, and discussed its 
memorial features. 

Mike traced the history of Aggie 
athletics during the past 17 years, 
from the days when a grandstand 
seating 300 was considered large 
enough to seat crowds at athletic 
events for all time to come, down to 
Saturday, October 28, 1922, when 
12,000 crowded all the available 
space around Ahearn Field and other 
hundreds certainly, perhaps thous- 
ands, were kept away by the word 
that all seats were sold a week in 
advance of the game. 

"The tremendous growth of athle- 
tics," said Mike, "has shown the 
fallacy of building too conservatively. 
The old grandstand has done Its 
duty, and Its history we cherish. In 
fact, we feel that It should be made 
a part of our museum collection. 

"The Stadium movement was in- 
augurated by Doctor Waters in 1909, 
but the time was not ripe. Then 
came the war and the sacrifices made 
by the legion of Aggies who entered 
the service. Remembering what lay 
nearest the hearts of the boys who 
went and who never returned, we 
resolved to erect the stadium as a 
memorial to them. The movement 
was started lasjt spring when the 
students oversubscribed their quota 
In six hours, and the faculty went 30 
per cent over the top. The towns- 
people are on the way to completion 
of their share. Later we shall come 
to the loyal alumni and friends of 
the school with an opportunity to 
help In this great memorial project." 
The members of both the Kansas 
City, Mo., and the Kansas City, Kan., 
alumni associations participated in 
the reception for the team, and the 
pep meeting. J. H. Anderson, '12, 
president of the Kansas City, Mo., 
association, introduced the speakers. 
The crowd "listened In" on Prof. 
H. W. Davis' stadium talk, which 
was broadcasted through the courtesy 
of the Kansas City Star. 

After the speeches a "mixer" was 


The office of the alumni executive 
secretary Is swamped. Persons 
awaiting answers to letters will not 
be surprised at the admission. The 
rain of mall began prior to Home- 
coming. It poured for more than a 
week. Then new duties were added 
to the office and the flow was aug- 
mented. Coupling this with the fact 
that the secretary has been in the 
field visiting alumni groups, excuse 
for seeming neglect may be granted. 
A working force is being built up to 
meet the demands on the office. 

held. The alumni got acquainted 
with the team and coaches, and the 
team and coaches with the alumni 
before the members of the squad 
were obliged to leave for Columbia. 

All's "Lovely" In Texas Now 

"The paragraph concerning me in a 
recent number of The Industrialist," 
writes H. E. Rose, '15, "was headed 
'Is Lonely In Texas.' This should 
now read 'lovely' as on the fifteenth 
of this month (October) I was mar- 
ried to Miss Lorena Hupp of Grand- 
field, Okla. " 

He's lenient with the alumni sec- 
retary at that, asking only a change 
in address of his Industrialist from 
1202 Holllday street, Wichita Falls, 
Tex., to Box 1227, Wichita Falls. He 
claims to be able to rectify the error 
in his designation as "lonely" with- 
out assistance. 

Four Aggies in Arkansas City H. 8.

Lora G. Mendenhall, '19, teaching 
In the high school at Friend, Nebr., 
is an Aggie believer. 

"I'll be on hand in Lincoln when 
the Aggies come up there. Nebras- 
ka thinks she has a wonderful team, 
but I haven't lost faith in the Ag- 
gies," she writes. 

Hess Gets Up Steam 

H. P. Hess, '05, Dallas, Tex., l8 
getting up some steam. He writes, 
"Last Saturday, the first time in 
17 years I have had an opportunity 
to see a football game at Manhattan, 
r saw the K. U. game. I had a hunch 
we would win but am very well satis- 
fled with a rather lucky tie. Guess I 
broke the jinx, and the next one I at- 
tend we'll whip 'em. 

"The new stadium when completed 
will be a wonderful thing and I hope 
to have the opportunity of viewing a 
number of games from it. I have 
known Mike well ever since he came 
to K. S. A. C, and with him on the 
job I am sure that athletics will con- 
tinue to grow and that K. S. A .0. 
will occupy a prominent position In 
the athletic world. I'll stand for the 
team's losing only one game this 
season — Nebraska." 

Esther Waugh, '22, Married

Journal of Blologlcnl Chemlatry Pub- 

lUhed Three Paper* by CoUese 

Graduate Students 

The October number of the Journ- 
al of Biological Chemistry contains 
three papers by members of the de- 
partment of food economics and nu- 
trition, division of home economics. 
These papers report the results of 
the experimental work in human 
metabolism presented in the mas- 
ters' these by Elizabeth J. McKit- 
rick, Elizabeth E. Klrkpatrick, and 
Ruth K. Trail. 

The problems studied, as Indicated 
by the titles of the theses, were, 
"Interrelations between Calcium and 
Magnesium Metabolism," "The Ef- 
fects of Acid Forming and Base 
Forming Diets upon Calcium Meta- 
bolism," and "The Influence of Yeast 
and Butter Fat upon Calcium Assim- 

These researches were promoted by 
a fund granted by the national re- 
search council. The work was direc- 
ted by Dr. L. Jean Bogert who ar- 
ranged the papers for publication in 
collaboration with the authors of the 
original theses. Doctor Bogert re- 
cently resigned her position here to 
enter research work in the Ford hos- 
pital, Detroit. 

"The scientific standards of the 
journal in which these papers ap- 
peared exclude all but high grade 
work," commented Dr. Helen B. 
Thompson, dean of home economics. 
"It is a credit to the college to have 
its graduate work in human nutri- 
tion so recognized." 

The division of home economics 
now offers opportunities for gradu- 
ate study equal to any In the land 
grant colleges or state universities. 
The students this year are engaged 
in a variety of problems ot interest 
comparable with those already pub- 
lished. The department of food ec- 
onomics and nutrition is fortunate in 
the addition to its staff of Dr. Martha 
Kramer, who has been engaged in 
research with Er. Henry C. Sherman 
of Columbia university. 


RcM!eivea Honor from American Gc- 
netioH Aaaociation 

Dr. W. A. Lipplncott, head of the 
poultry husbandry department of K. 
S. A. C. was recently appointed a 
member of the advisory committee of 
the American Genetic association. 
This committee is national in scope 
and has the particular responsibility 
of looking after the interests of the 
Journal of Heredity published by the 
association. Other members of the 
committee are E. B. Babcock, Uni- 
versity of California; L. J. Cole, Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin; E. M. East, 
Harvard; R. A. Emerson, Cornell: 
H. H. Newman, Chicago; George H. 
Shull, Princeton. 

HI Hill has figured out that the 
energy wasted in useless argument 
on what's the matter with the farm- 
er would plow all the land In Wildcat 
township six Inches deep for the next 
40 years. 

'Widely Known Authority Declares At- 

eragre Advertiaement la Filled with 

Uaeleaa Stuff— Predicts Important 

Advance In Next 25 Veara 

"The average advertisement today 
is so filled up with useless stuff that 
you could not pick an Idea out of it 
with a pair of tweezers," said Dr. 
Frank Alvah Parsons, president of 
the New York School of Fine and 
Applied Art, in an address at the col- 
lege Monday afternoon. 

Disappointment with the results of 
advertising was attributed by Doctor 
Parsons to poor copy. He predicted 
a rapid rise in the standards of ad- 
vertising, delaring that in 25 years 
the art of advertising would take 
precedence over practically all other 
modern conceptions. 


Doctor Parsons, who is a widely 
known auhority on design in adver- 
tising, clothing, house furnishing, 
and other fields, gave three addresses 
at the college. His subjects were "Art 
in Advertising, "Art, Dress, and Com- 
mon Sense," and "Art in Modern 
Life." His lectures were under the 
auspices of \he departments of ap- 
plied art, clothing and textiles, and 
industrial journalism and printing. 
One of his addresses was made at the 
student assembly on Tuesday. 

"The meaning of the word 'art' is 
less understood in America than In 
any other country in the world," said 
the speaker. "There are two rea- 
sons for America's backwardness. 
She is too young, and she has too 
much money. We have been spend- 
ing money for things which are neith- 
er essential nor beautiful, and it Is 
hard for us to change. 


"The arts of the present day in- 
clude the art of the house, which is 
the most important of all, the art of 
clothes, which is largely a matter of 
proportion, and the art of advertis- 
ing. The art of advertising is rel- 
atively new; it has developed within 
the last 20 years." 

Doctor Parsons said that advertis- 
ing is a twofold process — a method 
of bringing an idea to a possible con- 
sumer, and of selling the idea as well 
as getting it to the customer. 

First of all, he pointed out, the 
advertisement must function. It 
must be readable, well organized and 
not crammed with details, and It 
must be agreeable. 


"The advertiser," said Doctor Par- 
sons, "has to consider five distinct 
symbdls — copy, illustration, orna- 
ment, type, and color. 

"Illustrations must be used with 
exceeding care, and never unless they 
can tell what words will not. Nine 
out of 10 times they detract from 
the advertisement. 

"Ornament must follow the struc- 
tural lines of the thing it ornaments. 


"All type used in an advertisement 
should be of the same family. The 
indiscriminate use of upper and low- 
er case letters ruins the effect of an 
advertisement. Italics should be 
avoided. Type offers an enormous 
chance for artistic exposition which 
will help to sell an article. 

"The important things to remem- 
ber in the use of color are which 
color and why, and how much and 
where. Color should not be used in 
borders. The reader looks inside the 
border for what he wants, and the 
color should emphasize the thing the 
advertiser desires to sell." 

Fashion was characterized by Doc- 
tor Parsons as the greatest obstacle 
to artistic development. He criticized 
much house furnishing on the 
ground that it fails to follow the lines 
of the rooms or express their func- 
tion, and much modern dress on the 
ground that It departs from the na- 
tural lines of the body and throws 
emphasis in the wrong places. 


"People amuBfr me when they 
talk about young people of today 
going to the bad. So far as I 
can see — and I can see a good 
deal, old as I am — they are going 
to the good." 

So said Dr. Frank Alvah Par- 
sons of New York, international- 
ly famous designer and author, 
who lectured at the college this 
week. Doctor Parsons confesses 
to having little use for old fog- 
ies — he says he la old — though he 
doesn't look It — but no fogy. Like- 
wise he has little use for the 
period to which many old fogies 
hark back. 

"In my youth, back In the Vic- 
torian era, hypocrisy and senti- 
mentality were about the only 
virtues considered worth talk- 
ing about," said Doctor Par- 
sons, "I rejoice that we are get- 
ting rid of them, that we are be- 
coming frank. You can do any- 
thing with boys and girls by be- 
ing frank with them. If you are 
not frank, they will see it In a 
minute, and that will be your 
finish with them." 



Ii. C. WlUlama, Extenalon Hortlenl- 

tnrlat, Is In Charce of Programs 

and Arrangements 

Farm and Home week will be held 
at Kansas State Agricultural college, 
February 6-10, 1923. Features ot 
the program announced to date are 
a Judging contest for the amateur 
championship of Kansas and a horse- 
shoe pitching tournament open to all 
veteran pitchers In the state. 

The department short courses and 
the general assemblies at which well 
known agriculturists speak, will be 
held as in former years. 

L. C. Williams, extension horti- 
culturist, is in charge of programs 
and arrangements. Mr. WilllamB 
headed the registration committee 
last year and this fall had charge 
of the agricultural college education- 
al exhibit at the three state fairs.

ses of sister colleges all over Amer- 
ica. Proud of and encouraged by the 
fine enthusiasm of her students, fac- 
ulty, and friends at Manhattan she 
will soon call upon her alumni and 
friends for the balance that will 
make the Memorial stadium a cer- 
tainty and solve the most pressing 
student-activity problems she has 
ever faced. She is merely asking that 
her capacity for service be enlarged, 
that it be made possible for her to 
help the young men and women of 
Kansas to finer manhood and wo- 
manhood, higher ideals of true 
sportsmanship, and a more fruitful 
sense of cooperative citizenship." 


Dean Farrell's address, in part, fol- 

"Just now the most obvious and 
most acute need of the farmer is the 
restoration of normal price rela- 
tions. It now requires more of what 
the farmer sells to pay for the arti- 
cles he must buy than it did under 
normal price conditions. In other 
words, prices for farm products are 
abnormally low in terms of purchas- 
ing power. This is the basis of the 
farmer's present economic distress. 

"Readjustments in the organiza- 
tion of the farm business which will 
distribute instead of concentrate the 
farmer's hazards constitute a second 
need. American farming, imitating 
American industry, has developed a 
strong tendency toward narrow spec- 

"A third need of the farmer is that 
he develop willingness and ability to 
work with his neighbors in certain 
enterprises of production and of mar- 
keting which he is in the habit of un- 
dertaking individually. No matter 
how intelllgont and industrious an 
individual farmer is in trying to pro- 
tect his livestock against contagious 
diseases or to safeguard his crops 
against Insect pests, he frequently Is 
helpless unless his neighbors work 
with him in these efforts. 


"A fourth important need is that 
farmers, as individuals and as groups, 
learn to work more understandingly 
and more harmoniously with non- 
agricultural groups. We must all 
recognize sooner or later that each 
group has certain functions to per- 
form and that its own prosperity de- 
pends in the long run upon the ef- 
ficiency with which it performs them 

"Another important need of the 
American farmer is that he develop 
a keener intelligent appreciation of 
his own importance. At the same 
time it is needful that non-agricul- 
tural people appreciate more than 
they now do the importance of the 
farmer. We still hear altogether too 
often the expressions "I am only a 
farmer" from the one group, and "He 
is only a farmer" from the other. 
Farmers as a group are less dispens- 
able to civilization than any other 
part of the population." 

Appreciative Audience Hears K. 9. A. O. 

Nearly one thousand people atten- 
ded the recital given by Miss Helen 
M. Colburn, pianist, and Harry King 
Lament, violinist, with Miss Gertrude 
Rosemond as accompanist, of the de- 
partment of music at the auditorium, 
Sunday afternoon. 

Miss Colburn, who has charge ot 
the children's department, showed un- 
usual ability in her Interpretation 
of the light, fantastical composition. 
Her light staccato touch made the 
"Musical Snuff Box," by Lladow, one 
of the most appreciated numbers of 
the recital. 

Mr. Lamont is new to Manhattan 
music enthusiasts, but his skill as a 
violinist was proved to every person 
who heard him play "Souvenir De 
Moscou" by Wieniawski. This num- 
ber showed remarkable technique and 
skill. However it was Mr. Lament's 
last number, a waltz by Brahms, 
which assured the violinist of uni- 
versal appreciation. 

Miss Rosemond was a very capable 
accompanist and assisted Mr. La- 
mont very well in his numbers. 

Each Sunday some of the members 
of the music department will appear 
in recital. The purpose of the re- 
citals is to give to Manhattan music 
lovers an opportunity to hear the best 
classical music, by persons of unusu- 
al experience. 

In next Sunday's recital will ap- 
pear Miss Gladys Warren, pianist. 
Miss Edna Ellis, soprano, and Miss 
Elsie Smith, accompanist.

The certification project is in 
charge of D. J. Taylor, extension 
poultryman. He or an agent desig- 
nated by him will inspect the whole 
farm flock, banding with a sealed 
band those birds which are to re- 
main a part of the' certified flock. 
All other birds must be separated 
from these. In order that a flock 
may be certified, 50 per cent of the 
birds must comply with the breed 
standards in both type and color, 
25 per cent in at least type, and 25 
per cent in at least color. 

Accurate records of production 
must be kept in certified flocks. In- 
spection will be made annually. Ap- 
plications for certificates should be 
made through county agents.

AK'rononiy ProfrNnor la Doing: Advanced 
AVurk In Holla 

Prof. R. I. Throckmorton of the 
agronomy department is on leave of 
absence for the present college year, 
and is taking graduate work in soils 
at Cornell university. "Throck," as 
he is almost universally known among 
K. S. A. C. students and faculty, 
was graduated from Pennsylvania 
State college in 1911, and has been 
a member of the teaching and ex- 
periment station staff of K. S. A. C. 
since that time. He is recognized as 
one of the most practical men in the 
agricultural division, and knows the 
problems of the soil as seen by the 
"dirt farmer" as well as in their 
more technical and scientific phases. 

Professor Throckmorton has had 
actual field experience in soil sur- 
vey work for the bureau of soils of 
the United States department of ag- 
riculture in Kansas. His soil sur- 
vey course and the courses in dry 
land farming and soil management 
are popular because of their actual 
worth to the student. 

Professor Throckmorton is the 
author of several bulletins published 
by the Kansas agricultural experi- 
ment station. Among these are re- 
ports of soil surveys of Shawnee, 
Cherokee, Reno, and Jewell coun- 
ties, a bulletin on "The Use of Dyna- 
mite in the Improvement of Heavy 
Clay Soils;" a general bulletin on 
soil fertility; a bulletin on fertilizers 
for alfalfa in eastern Kansas, and a 
circular on the use of commercial 
fertilizers in Kansas. 

Ho is taking advanced courses in 
soils at Cornell under Dr. T. L. Lyon 
and Dr. F. O. Buckman, two of the 
recognized leaders in soils research 
and teaching work in this country, 
and authors of a college textbook 
on soils which is used in most Ameri- 
can agricultural colleges and uni-

"An- didn't It rain?" 

"An* didn't It rain?" 

"An' didn't It rain?" 

The Iowa Aggies and the Kansas 
Aggies will swear that it rained. And 
they ought to know. For two long, 
soaking hours they battled on a field 
half mud and three fourths water 
with here and there a sprig of semi- 
solid earth. And when the time was 
up — they couldn't blow the whistle 
because it was full of water — the 
score was 12 to 2 in favor of the Ag- 
gies — from Kansas. It will be many 
a rainy day in the Missouri valley be- 
fore there is another struggle like 
the one that the Cyclone and the 
Wildcat engaged In on Ahearn puddle 
last Saturday. 


It was a particularly pleasing spec- 
tacle to the adherents of K. S. A. C. 
because the Wildcat superiority stood 
out all during the game just as the 
optimism of the officials' pretty white 
pantaloons did during the first eight 
seconds of play. The Cyclones had 
one phantom chance at a touchdown 
in the last quarter. After complet- 
ing a long forward pass to the Aggie 
five yard line, and it was a neat one, 
the Ames warriors, misled by the rain, 
foolishly decided to test the Bach- 
man line for leaks. But leaks there 
were none, and the .ball went over to 
the Wildcats who craftilyigrounded it 
for a safety on the next play rather 
than risk a muddy kick from under 
the goal posts. 

Captain Hahn's mudcats did their 
counting in the first and third quar- 
ters by brilliant aerial offensives. 
Clements scored the first touchdown 
and Munn the second. Both attempts 
at goal failed, the soggy pigskin re- 
fusing to be lifted more than two 
or three feet off the earth. The sec- 
ond quarter was a kicking duel and 
the fourth a wild mixture of punt and 
pass. The game ended with the ball 
in the Aggies' possession on the Ames 
one-yard line. It had been lugged 
there by Webber, who intercepted a 
forward pass and ran, stumbled, 
twisted, skidded, and submarined 
for 16 yards before the tackling Cy- 
clone could stop him. Another play 
would doubtless have meant another 
touchdown for the web-footed Wild- 


It was a game no beholder will 
ever quit telling about. To see it 
through, 2,000 loyal fans submitted 
to a drenching that would have given 
a wild duck influenza. It rained five 
times, 15 minutes for each quarter 
and fifteen minutes between halves. 
The precipitation varied from a nasty 
mist to a young cloudburst, but no- 
body cared and nobody was ever 
down-hearted. The whole north half 
of the gridiron was covered with 
from one to four inches of the mud- 
diest water that ever was wet. 

Just to assure old Jupiter Pluvius 
that nobody cared a rip anyhow the 
Aggie band opened the services by 
playing "How Dry I Am." Then the 
spick and span athletes trotted on the 
field. Brief preliminaries, and kick- 
off and one scrimmage, and you could 
not tell one from t'other or player 
from official. As soon as every play- 
er got a coating of an inch or two of 
mud the Aggies introduced their pass- 
ing game. Of course not a soul ex- 
pected it, because nobody knew that 
Bachman had been drilling his prot- 
eges In the Kaw river. The wisest 
football wiseacre that ever went un-

choked could have told Swartz et al 
that it was absurd to pass, but luckily 
no one told them. So they passed 
anyhow — completed 9 out of 17 for 
a total of 120 yards, which would not 
have been a bad record for a fine 
day and no opposition to speak of. 


Individual honors of the game go 
to Webber and Munn for their great 
work at tackling and pass grabbing 
and to Swartz, Brandley and Stark 
for their passing, kicking, and gen- 
eralship. The whole Wildcat aggre- 
gation worked like a piece of machin- 
ery. The Ames t^m did all that you 
could expect from any excellent foot- 
ball team under the circumstances. 
The Aggies beat them because they 
did a lot more than you could expect. 

The officiating was without a flaw, 
notwithstanding the fact that it was 
often necessary to take soundings to 
locate the lime lines. The valet ser- 
vice gratuitously thrown in by the 
referee and the umpire made quite a 
hit with the crowd. After each down 
the ball had to be manicured and the 
mud shoveled off the faces of the 
backfield men. There was nobody to 
do it but the officials. 

In spite of the elements — and "ele- 
ments" was a mouthful last Saturday 
— it was a fine, smart football game, 
a not ignoble defeat, and a glorious 
victory. It will make mighty good 
stuff to tell to the next generation of 
Kansas Aggie students. — H. W. D.

smashes were a big aid in the Aggies' 
first touchdown. 

The Aggies gave Ames the safety 
for the reason that the chances of 
blocking the kick were too great and 
if Ames should have recovered the 
ball it meant a touchdown. The goal 
posts were in front of the kicker 
which might have stopped the ball. 
Since it was the last quarter and the 
Aggies had a two touchdown lead it 
was the only thing to do. The Ag-

SO — Three Day Convention 
Cloaca Friday 

Delegates from 42 chapters rep- 
resenting colleges and universities 
from all parts of the United States 
are in Manhattan this week for the 
eighth national convention of Sig- 
ma Delta Chi, professional journal- 
istic fraternity. The fourth estaters 
met in their first session Wednesday 
morning at 10 o'clock in Recreation 
hall where President W. M. Jardine 
delivered the address of welcome. 
Later sessions are to be held in Ked- 
zie hall, the journalism building. 
The three day convention will close 

A number of the approximately 
50 collegians who are expected to 
attend the conclave arrived in the 
city today and the remainder are ex- 
pected in tonight and in the morn- 
ing. Large delegations from the 
Ames and Nebraska chapters plan to 
be here for the three days. 


The local chapter has been work- 
ing all fall on plans for the conven- 
tion and an extensive program of en- 
tertainment has been prepared for 
the visitors. The day sessions will 
be taken up almost entirely with 
business, and the delegates 
will be in meeting practically eight 
full hours a day during the last two 
days. A luncheon will be given to 
the local chapter and to the visitors 
by Theta Sigma Phi, journalistic sor- 
ority, on Thursday. 

The big events are scheduled for 
the three evenings of the convention. 
On Wednesday evening a smoker 
will be given at the Community house 
by the downtown business men, 
Speeches will be given by several 
prominent college and downtown 
men and possibly by an out of town 
speaker yet to be secured. A dance 
will be the principal attraction on 
Thursday evening. It will be In rec- 
reation center. 


The chief event of the program 
comes on Friday, the last evening. 
A banquet at the Gillett is to be 
the feature. The delegates, represen- 
tatives of the faculty, of the local pa- 
pers, and of the chamber of com- 
merce will be guests of the chapter. 
Charles M. Harger, of Abilene, well 
known magazine writer, and E. Hal- 
deman-Julius, of Girard, nationally 
famous author and publisher, have 
been secured to deliver the principal 

On Saturday the delegates to the 
convention have been invited to be 
the guests of the Capper publications 
at Topeka. This company will pay 
the expense of the men who make 
the trip to Topeka and will enter- 
tain them after they get there. Since 
this is the biggest farm press in the 
country it is expected that many will 
take advantage of the opportunity.

The college Is glad to welcome the 
delegates to the annual convention 
of Sigma Delta Chi, professional 
journalism fraternity. 

Professional fraternities are occu- 
pying a larger and larger place in 
college and university life, especially 
in the middle western and far west- 
ern states. In the small eastern col- 
lege, where vocational instruction Is 
not offered, the general fraternities, 
containing from 75 to 95 per cent of 
the men In college, cover much the 
same field that is covered by both 
the general and professional frater- 
nities in states farther west. It is 
the boast of one of these institutions 
that, with a single exception, no first- 
class student has ever failed of elec- 
tion to a general fraternity. 

With the smaller proportion of men 
in general fraternities in the middle 
west and far west, the professional 
fraternity occupies a distinctive place. 
So does it in the larger Institutions 
of the east. It is one of the strongest 
influences in the direction of high 
ethical ideals in the profession or 
calling that it represents. 

Sigma Delta Chi stands particular- 
ly high in this respect. This is as it 
should be. The newspaper is a quasi- 
public institution. As such it holds 
a public responsibility to perform a 
public service. It has not always 
recognized this, though probably it 
has stood as high as any other pro- 
fession that might be named. In 
maintaining a high standard of ethics, 
journalists fight against heavier odds, 
and such errors as they make are 
more obvious, than in any other pro- 

The standard of ethics in the pro- 
fession is being raised, as standards 
always are, by the young. The old 
cling to the past and to the stand- 
ards of the past. The young press 
forward. Youth is always, or nearly 
always, right. 

Sigma Delta Chi, representing as 
it does a body, for the most part of 
young men, consecrated to special 
service in behalf of high ideals in 
the profession of journalism, lias an 
opportunity to aid in the accomplish- 
ment of perhaps the most Important 
task facing civilization — that of mak- 
ing the newspaper, as distributor of 
unbiased facts, the ultimate reliance 
of popular government. The influ- 
ence of the fraternity in this di- 
rection is already manifest.

The Journalist's Creed 

Walter Williams 

I believe in the profession of journalism. 

I believe that the public journal is a public trust; 
that all connected with it are, to the full measure of 
their responsibility, trustees for the public; that accep- 
tance of lesser service than the public service Is betrayal 
of this trust. 

I believe that clear thinking and clear statement, 
accuracy and fairness, are fundamental to good journ- 

I believe that a journalist should write only what 
he holds in his heart to be true. 

I believe that suppression of the news, for any consid- 
eration other than the welfare of society, is Indefensible. 

I believe that no one should write as a journalist 
what he would not say as a gentleman; that bribery by 
one's own pocketbook is as much to be avoided as brib- 
ery by the pocketbook of another; that individual re- 
sponsibility may not be escaped by pleading another's 
instructions or another's dividends. 

I believe that advertising, news, and editorial 
columns should alike serve the best Interests of read- 
ers; that a single standard of helpful truth and clean- 
ness should prevail for all; that the supreme test of 
good journalism is the measure of its public service. 

I believe that the journalism which succeeds best — 
and best deserves success — fears God and honors man; 
Is stoutly independent, unmoved by pride of opinion or 
greed of power, constructive, tolerant but never care- 
less, self-controlled, patient, always respectful of its 
readers but always unafraid; is quickly indignant at 
injustice; is unswayed by the appeal of privilege or th& 
human brotherhood can make it so, an equal chance; 
and, as far as law and honest wage and recognition of 
human brotherhood can make it so. An equal chance; 
is profoundly patriotic while sincerely promoting inter- 
national good will and cementing world-comradeship; Is 
a journalism of humanity, of and for today's world.

Dr. J. J). Walters in Kansas State Engineer 
The main step that the art of house- 
warming took subsequent to the set- 
tlement of America was the perfec- 
tion and introduction of the iron 
stove for both cooking and heating 
purposes. The first stove of this 
kind is said to have been designed 
by Benjamin Franklin in 1744. It 
stood out from the wall and consis- 
ted of a square Iron box with an iron 
top. The front was open and on 
the rear was a smoke pipe that con- 
nected with the chimney. It gave 
heat through the iron plates. The 
next improvement was the provision 
of a small front doorlet on wrought 
iron hinges. This change led grad- 
ually to the construction of the com- 
plex parlor range with regulating 
valves, mica windows, and nickel 
plated metal frame. 

Later it was decided to put the 
whole warming apparatus In the 
basement and to circulate air, ob- 
tained from the outside, through 
what we now call a "furnace." The 
hot air furnace was a great advance 
over the stove, but it was soon fol- 
lowed by the Invention of steam 
heating and hot water heating. The 
first complete steam plants for heat- 
ing purposes were built about a cen- 
tury ago, yet It took 50 years until 
they became common. James Watt, 
the inventor of the steam engine, is 
said to have used steam for heating 
his study in the winter of 1784-85. 
Waitt's pipe-line was of the "one 
pipe" kind; the "two-pipe" circulat- 
ing steam came later. 

Another step in steam heating 
was the introduction of the self oper- 
ating air valve in the radiator. At 
first people had to operate these 
valves by hand, but later they were 
made to work automatically, i. e., to 
open when the radiator became warm 
and to close when it was filled with 
steam and became hot. The hand 
valve was often neglected, either in 
the opening or in the closing, and 
the result was unsatisfactory heat- 
ing, or the flooding of the rooms by 
escaping water or steam. 

C. G. Elling, extension animal 
husbandman, and M. H. Coe, assist- 
ant state leader of boys' and 
girls' clubs, have written a general 
pig club bulletin. When ready for 
distribution it will be sent to all pig 
club members in the state. The sub- 
ject matter deals with feeding prin- 
ciples, quarters and sanitation, man- 
agement of breeding sows and litters, 
management of market classes, and 
management of breeding classes of 
the different types of hogs. The 
manual will prove a valuable help to 
those interested in hog production. 

During the last 20 years the farm- 
ers of Kansas have produced approx- 
imately 400 million dollars' worth of 
hogs, or 20 million dollars' worth 
each year. 

The first step toward saving in pro- 
duction is in finding out where the 
unnecessary expenses are incurred. 
This can be done only by keeping 
careful farm accounts.

equipment are the best I have seen 
at any college. A new $400,000 
physics building has just been com- 
pleted; a $600,000 chemistry build- 
ing la now In the process of con- 
struction and work is to be started 
soon on a million dollar gymnasium, 
one feature of which will be a gallery 
seating 3,500 people for basketball, 
indoor track meets, etc. A large 
wing will be built to be used as an 
ice-skating rink, for ice hockey is one 
of the leading inter-collegiate sports 

"In addition to my regular work 
as chemist for the Interprovinclal 
Flour mills, I am head coach of the 
football-rugby team at the univers- 
ity. I have a fast bunch, and next 
Saturday we play the University of 
Alberta here for the western Canada 
Intercollegiate championship. 

"Canadian rugby is breaking al- 
most entirely away from the English 
style and now with the exception of 
the prohibition of the forward pass 
and certain restrictions on running 
interference. It Is almost exactly like 
the American game. I think the for- 
ward pass will be adopted next year." 

They Like Ck>well 

The following clipping was taken 
from the lola ihlgh school paper, 
the lola Lampoon: 

Mr. Warren C. ("Brady") Cowell 
is, beyond the shadow of a doubt, the 
best coach lola High School has had 
for a number of years. In fact he 
has developed a team which com- 
pares favorably with those of the old- 
en days when Dunham, Seymour, 
Thompson and Oliver played. 

Mr. Cowell's home is at Clay Cen- 
ter, Kansas, and he is a graduate of 
K. S. A. C. While at college Mr. 
Cowell earned three letters in each 
of the three sports: football, basket- 
ball and baseball. This makes him a 
total of nine letters in three years. 

In football, where he played half- 
back, be was one of the most aggres- 
sive and consistent performers on the 
team. In basketball, as guard, he 
was one of the cleverest defensive 
men in the Missouri Valley. In his 
senior year he was captain of his 
team. On the baseball team he play- 
ed second base and it was hard to 
find his equal in the field or at bat. 

No doubt few students realize how 
fortunate I. H. S. is to have Mr. Cow- 
ell, but it is hoped that they will 
soon wake up to the fact and learn 
to appreciate him. Under his expert 
guidance I. H. S. can be assured of 
a successful athletic year. 



Aggies and Future Aggies Camp 

"A camping party which invaded 
Vermont via the Mohawk trail last 
summer was composed of these Ag- 
gies and future Aggies — Lester A. 
Ramsey, '06; Ruth (Neiman) Ram-

Aggies at Montana State 
Six Kansas Aggies are on the fac- 
ulty of Montana State college at Boz- 
eman, Mont., according (to Jw W^i 
Barger, '22, and two former stu- 
dents live in that city. "Although 
we have no club or organization," 
Barger writes, "we are thrown to- 
gether occasionally, and on these oc- 
casions we never fail to talk of K.

To Visit Engineering Alumni 

R. A. Seaton, '04, dean of the di- 
vision of engineering, will present a 
paper "The Organization of an En- 
gineering Experiment Station," at 
the annual meeting of the Land 
Grant College association in Wash- 
ington, D. C, November 21-23. He 
will go to Washington by way of Chi- 
cago and Pittsburgh, stopping off at 
each place to visit with engineering 
graduates. He will also visit with 
graduates of the division in New 
York City and Schenectady on his re- 
turn journey. 

President W. M. Jardine will also 
attend the meeting of the associa- 

Davis' Children Former Students 

Mary Frances ( Davis) McCormick, 
eldest daughter of Governor-elect 
Johnathan Davis, is a former K. S. A. 
C. student. Her husband is Dewey 
Z. McCormick, '21. Mrs. McCormick 
had a splendid scholastic record dur- 
ing her three years in college, al- 
though she did not remain long 
enough to gain the important honors 
for scholarship which are awarded to 
juniors and seniors. Slie is a mem- 
ber of the Kappa Kappa Gamma 
chapter here. 

Russell, only son of the governor- 
elect, is also a former K. S.A.C. 
student. He was here the school year 
of 'IS-'ie, being forced to withdraw 
by injuries suffered during practice 
in gymnastics. He will manage his 
father's farm during the latter's in- 

"Yours for an all-vIctorlous Wild- 
cat team." 

Thus endeth the reading of bo 
many letters from alumni to this 
office. For which reason pardon 
may be granted it a few remarks 
are made. 

The Aggies are finding themselves. 
The football team has a remarkable 
record — six games without defeat — 
five of them Missouri Valley confer- 
ence contests — another to be played. 
No Valley team had a more difficult 
schedule. The Wildcats took on the 
biggest of them, and without rest 

Remember the old slogan, "Beat 
K. U."? It has been done two suc- 
cessive years. Reference is to final 
conference standing, not to compara- 
tive scores. Last year the university 
won its game from the Aggies but 
stood lower in the percentage col- 
umn at the end of the season. This 
year the team tied, in the annual 
contest, but the Aggies are away out 
in front in conference standing. K. 
U. cannot overtake them. 

"Beat K. U." Is old stuph. Speak- 
ing of football, that's that. 

The Aggies are finding themselves. 
That goes for the alumni also. Out 
over the state the men and women 
holding degrees from K. S. A. C. are 
awakening. They are showing fight. 
Associations of alumni and former 
students are being organized and new 
life is springing up in the old organ- 
izations. Every association will be 
a fighting unit to take a part In the 
stadium campaign. 

Kansas City (both of them as one), 
Topeka, Wichita, Hutchinson — all 
are getting together the material 
from which to pick teams. They 
realize the campaign can no longer be 
delayed and are diligently making 
ready. They take for granted that 
the smaller cities and communities 
will follow example. Much prepara- 
tion must be made before the kick- 

The source of all this pep? Who 
knows? Every loyal Aggie has it, 
and has had it. He is only letting it 
have rein now. He realizes as nev- 
er before that he made no mistake 
in choosing his institution. The 
old school is alive — just as its foot- 
ball team is alive and fighting. And 
the sleepy alumnus knows that he 
must arouse himself and step to keep 
from being run down. 

Perhaps the football team has 
broadcasted the spark of Inspiration. 
All credit to them! It could not be 
better placed. The alumni seem 
now to be adopting the attack methods 
of the team — study the enemy de- 
fensively, then bore in with the best 
you have, and fight 'em. 

When the big game for which the 
alumni are aligning themselves is 
over, the stadium will have been 

Fifteen for Frankenhoff! 

C. A. "Frank" Frankenhoff, '18, 
writes from the Quaker City: 

"Charles A. Frankenhoff, Jr., will 
help win laurels for old Kansas State 
college beginning 1942. He was born 
August 24 of the present year. I ex- 
pect to see him play fullback if he 
continues to grow. He could substi- 
tute very well now for a cheer lead- 

"John Rathburn, '16, and Char- 
lotte (Hall) Rathburn, '17, call on 
us occasionally. Homer Cross, '19, 
and Velma (Carson) Cross, '19, 
pleasantly surprised me by calling 
two weeks ago. 

"Please have The Indubtbialist 
forwarded to me at 522 Bulletin 
building, Philadelphia. I shall be 
mighty glad to have all fellow Kan- 
sas Staters pay me a call when in 
Phlladelpha. The Bulletin building 
as at the northeast corner of City 
Hall square, only one square from 
the Reading terminal. Who will be 
the first caller? 

"I wish the best of success to the 
stadium drive, which will have my 
hearty support." 

A '20 Turns Gypsy 

Mabel (Bentley) Imes, '20, writes 
in from "Auto Tent, Marble Creek, 
Idaho — where the mountains go 
straight up" that she has become a 
gypsy, having spent the past 28 
months with her husband in the 
mountains of northern Idaho and 
western Washington claiming a Ford 
car and an auto tent as their only 
home. "This year," she writes, "we 
have been accompanied on our gypsy 
tour by our small son, Randall Bent- 
ley Imes, who has now passed his 
sixth month, four of them having 
been spent in a tent that has moved 
around a lot." 


Edna (Colth) Atkinson, '14, Dead 

Edna (Coith) Atkinson, '14, died 
unexpectedly October 23, at pan- 
vllle, Va. Mrs. Atkinson was gradu- 
ated with honors from K. S. A. C. 
She was employed for two years as 
assistant in home economics at the 
Illinois State normal, Bloomington. 
In 1917 she was made head of the 
home economics department of Win- 
throp college. Rock Hill, S. C, and 
in 1919 was chosen for state super- 
visor of home economics in North 
Carolina. In August, 1920, she was 
married to the Rev. George H. Atkin- 
son, a strong proponent of the cause 
of higher education for southern wo- 
men. In 1921 she was called to the 
position of dean of women at the 
Florida state college for women, Tal- 
lahassee. This was her last public 

Moxley Wins a Pew Prizes 
J. J. Moxley, '22, smiled modestly 
but broadly when asked Homecoming 
day how he was getting along with 
his horse and cattle business. He 
has been in charge of the Riley Coun- 
ty Breeding farms, Leonardville, 
since graduation last June. Percher- 
on horses and Hereford cattle are 
grown on the farms. 

"We did fairly well at the fairs," 
Moxley admitted. "Our horses won 
six out of 10 grand champions in the 
shows at Topeka, Hutchinson, Okla- 
homa City, Muskogee, and Dallas. 
Besides that they won three reserve 
grand champions. They took 25 blue 
ribbons and 15 red ones in 49 classes. 
We didn't show cattle." 

AsKle Alnmnna Deputy Chief of Staff 

Declares Paclflata Did an About 

Face Wltliin a Montli 

The speed with which human na- 
ture may bring a nation Into war, the 
quickness with which even ardent pa- 
cifists demand a bloody battle to the 
finish when an issue arises, was 
brought home with startling clearness 
by Major General James G. Harbord, 
'86, deputy chief of staff. In an ad- 
dress recently before the New 
York post of the army ordnance 

General Harbord, in an ironical at- 
tack on pacifism, referred to the re- 
cent storm which arose In this 
nation when it appeared a holy war 
threatened in the near east. 

"In July," said General Harbord, 
"a solemn demonstration with 
flaunting banners, music, and 
speeches was held in Washington, 
in the course of which the President 
was urged to set aside a 'no more 
war day' for annual observance. 
The movement was said to be nation- 
wide. War was to end. The dove 
of peace was to take on Immortality. 
"In September, the war drums 
began to throb In the near east. 
There was a rush of troops and war- 
ships to the cross roads of the 
world, the city of the golden horn. 
Britain was at the breach. The 
League of Nations scuttled for the 
cyclone cellar. The cynical old 
world diplomats smiled and began 
to pin on their decorations prepara- 
tory to taking seats at the council 
table. Mustapha Kemal, a Turk I 
know to be a decent young man try- 
ing to do for bis country what you 
and I would do for ours in a similar 
situation, was represented as sharp- 
ening his scimitar on the tomb of 
Mahomet to slit the throats of the 
infidel. The faithful had once more 
raised the cresent against the cross. 
"Thus the headliners got In their 
deadly work, and the White House 
was overwhelmed with demands that 
our country intervene in the near 
eastern situation, and if necessary, 
join England in war against Turkey. 
Resolutions were adopted all over 
the country insisting that the Turks 
must be checked at any cost. 

"Most of this insistence came 
from organizations apparently will- 
ing to invoke war wit"hout giving 
the diplomats even a chance to settle 
things. The class which would dis- 
band the army and scuttle the navy 
a year ago, now wanted a host and 
an armada to move against the Turk. 
Those who condemned even our nig- 
gardly appropriations in 1921 now 
demanded a war to a finish regard- 
less of oost. The supporters of the 
league in 1919 were now howling 
for blood. In a month the dove of 
peace had grown spurs." 

Paging Scott County Aggies 
Blanche (Burt) Yeaton, '14, Shal- 
low Water, issues a call for a get- 
together of Scott county Aggies. Ob- 
ject, the formation of a county alum- 
ni association. 

C. H. Zimmerman, '16, to Italy 

J. Henry Zimmerman, '12, writes 
interestingly of the work he and his 
brother C. H. Zimmerman, '16, are 
doing in the aeronautics department 
of the Goodyear Rubber company at 
Akron, Ohio. However, his remarks 
are confined mainly to the doings of 
his brother. 

C. H. Zimmerman spent July and 
August in Italy as an emissary of 
the Goodyear company. He induced 
an eminent Italian aeronautical engi- 
neer to come to the Akron plant for 
the purpose of instructing the Good- 
year engineers in the most advanced 
practice in the construction of semi- 
rigid lighter-than-air craft. 

The trip also took Zimmerman to 
France, Germany, Switzerland, and 
England. While in Germany he vis- 
ited his mother's sisters and fami- 
lies, whom he had never seen, and 
with whom he could only talk 
through an interpreter. 

McRucr Taking Post Grad Work 

W. J. McRuer, since graduation 
a county agent in Nebraska, has 
seen the value of additional technical 
training and has been willing to give 
up a good salary in the field of 
practical agriculture and spend the 
time to take advanced work. He is 
enrolled as a post graduate student 
in the college. In addition to his 
graduate studies, Mr. McRuer is as- 
sisting in laboratory courses in soils 
in the agronomy department.

dickens' talk on improving

Head of Department of Hortlcnltore 

Given Nanbcr on Star's Ednca- 

tloaal Sertea — Dean Holton to 

Speak Saturday Nisht 

Prof. Albert Dickens, head of the 
college department of horticulture, 
delivered an address on "Improving 
the Home Place" which was broad- 
casted by the Kansas City Star radio 
sending station Friday night. The 
address was the third of the educa- 
tional series given by K. S. A. C. 

E. L. Holton, head of the depart- 
ment of education and dean of the 
summer school, will give the fifth 
number Saturday night. Professor 
Dickens' address, in part, follows: 

"Everyone is planning for improve- 
ments. Inside or outside the home 
some change suggests itself that will 
add to the convenience or the beauty 
or the satisfaction of ownership. Im- 
provements made with lumber, or 
plaster, or brick or stone should be 
carefully considered and well advised 
so that the expense may be an in- 
vestment and be an added value to 
the property. So, too, should any 
change or addition td the grounds and 
plantings be carefully considered, for 
while you may hope that your brick 
and lumber and paint may increase 
your estate by the amount expended, 
the cost of trees, shrubs, flowers and 
lawn should compound interest and 
double the investment every few 


"There are some few places that 
seem to be perfectly planned and 
planted. To maintain this condition 
some thought must be given and 
some action taken that the factors 
of soil and surroundings favoring the 
continuance of the high degree of 
excellence may be maintained. The 
old Scotch gardener's directions for 
getting a good turf on the golf course, 
'Get a good soil, put on plenty of 
seed, water it, roll it, weed it, then 
keep putting on more seeds and fer- 
tilizer and rolling it and in a few 
hundred years you will have a very 
good turf,' need not discourage any 
one for you will have made a very 
fair lawn in the long meanwhile. 

"Good lawns are not always easy 
to secure or maintain for it takes 
food in the soil to grow grass and an 
application of fertilizer should be one 
of the regular exercises. Bone meal, 
some wood ashes, or some of the 
complete lawn fertilizers may be used, 
or rotted manure free from weed seed 
may be applied and raked in. 


"Grass is the background of your 
picture and the foundation of your 
plan. If there are thin spots, sow 
some seed. Enrich the soil, let a 
mulch of leaves protect It over win- 
ter, and keep it damp through early 

"Make a plan or get someone who 
can to make or suggest one. It may 
be easily changed while on paper and 
be sure that the arrangement is a 
good one. All the artists and archi- 
tects stress curved lines. Natural ar- 
rangement, mass plantings, and open 
centers are familiar phrases and their 
combination in a harmonious way 
will give good results. 


"Many places need some thinning. 
A few well grown trees are much 
better than a large number of ill 
shaped ones. Now that the leaves 
are down it is well to look them 
over and decide which ones should 
be removed. Most of the common 
shade trees will demand an area 
forty feet in diameter and really fine 
specimens may need much more ter- 

"The choice of a tree is a most 
Important matter. It should be adap- 
ted to your soil, your location and 
the area it may occupy. For a small 
yard a tree that will not make a wide, 
open growth should be selected, such 
as a hard maple, a pin oak, a haw- 

thorn or a persimmon. For big 
country places trees that will attain 
goodly size and maintain a form sug- 
gestive of strength and vigor should 
be selected. 

"Nearly every farm may well add 
more trees to its resources. Every 
waterway should be planted. The 
trees are the very best crop that 
may be grown in such locations. They 
hold the soil, reduce the velocity and 
the erosive power of the run-off-wat- 
er, add wealth to the owner and give 
joy to everyone. 


"The farm woodlot as a source of 
lumber and fuel supply is increasing- 
ly important. Plan to plant trees. In 
the planting for effect, shrubs must 
usually provide for the blending of 
lawn and trees. They are nature's 
nurse crops for young trees. Na- 
ture plants seeds along foundations 
and we hurry the process by setting 
suitable shrubs to break the hard 
lines. Spireas, honeysuckles, Japan- 
ese barberry, sumac, elder and a host 
of others are used. 

"The quickest results obtainable 
are secured with bulbs. A few dozen 
crocus, tulips, and narcissus, planted 
tomorrow, will almost surely reward 
you with abundant bloom in March 
and April. Set in a border where 
they need not be disturbed they will 
declare annual dividends of increas- 
ing proportions. Then plant some 
peonies and iris where you may have 
them for long years to come. Col- 
umbine and larkspur and then in 
spring reinforce them with the tender 
bulbs and annuals."

GIvcH Addrods at College 

Using the old form of making tar- 
iffs in contrast with the pro- 
posed new method, as his subject. 
Dr. W. S. Culbertson of the United 
States tariff commission addressed 
the student assembly recently. Dr. 
Culbertson is a graduate of Yale uni- 
versity. He has been connected with 
the tariff commission for many years. 
The big change In tariff making, if 
the new method is adopted, will in- 
vest the president with the power to 
adjust rates without referring the de- 
tails back to congress. He will have 
the power to increase or decrease the 
rates to the extent of 50 per cent. 
The president may change the tariff 
rates only with the ai'*horizatlon and 
approval of the tariff commissioners. 
Formerly, according to Dr. Cul- 
bertson, it took as long as 18 months 
to draft a new tariff. Every element 
In industry was present to obtain the 
best rates for his interests. Thou- 
sands of details, including statistics 
of every industry, from making shoe- 
strings to tractors, had to be noted. 
For these details, opinions of inter- 
ested parties had to be taken, or a 
guess made as to what should be the 
proper rate. Formerly all of these 
details had to be brought before con- 
gress for its approval, raising innum- 
erable difficulties over details and us- 
ing a great deal of time. 

Providing the new method for 
making tariffs is passed, Dr. Culbert- 
son stated it would prove more effici- 
ent by getting facts systematically, 
and through Informed investigators, 
and would save time in drafting by 
not presenting details to congress. The 
main object accomplished would be 
the equalization of cost of production 
of competing countries. 

Too much cottonseed meal in the 
dairy cow's ration will produce hard, 
tallowy butter, light in color and 
poor in flavor. 

In packing meat, put It in the brine 
skin side down except the top layer 
which should be turned flesh side 

One quart of rice cooked in a 
double boiler will absorb a quart of 
milk. This will make a nourishing 
food, especially for children. 

The engineers of the K. 8. A. C 
class of 'i2 are practically unanim- 
ous in following the profession for 
which they fitted themselves, accord- 
ing to information secured by Dean 
Roy A. Seaton, '04. Sixty were 
granted degrees last June, and 69 are 
now engaged in engineering work. 
The one who is not following the 
profession is farming, but he was 
graduated in agricultural engineer- 
ing, so his defection is not great. 

Eighteen of the 60 graduates are 
in Kansas. Twenty-five per cent are 
in Illlonis, and the remainder are di- 
vided among 15 other states. 


The electrical engineering gradu- 
ates were the strongest numerically,

Smith, accompanist, assisted by Ro- 
bert Gordon, cellist, Harry King La- 
ment, violinist, all of the college de- 
partment of music, appeared in the 
program of last Sunday's afternoon 
concert at the auditorium. 

An unusual feature of the program 
was the diversity of numbers. Miss 
Ellis sang selections In Italian, 
French, and English. Her last num- 
ber, "De Puis le Jour" by Charpen- 
tier, with violin and violoncello ob- 
ligatos was especially good. Miss 
Ellis sings with great ease and has 
a remarkably clear voice. 

Miss Warren proved that she could 
do many types of composition equal- 
ly well. Her sympathetic interpre- 
tation of each selection gave it extra- 
ordinary individuality. Miss War- 
ren's playing of "Humoreske," by 
Rachmaninoff, had those clear vib- 
rant qualities that only a Rachmanin- 
off composition, played well, can 
have. The audience especially ap- 
preciated Miss Warren's last number, 
"Tango Americain," by Carpentier, 
which was a classical interpretation 
of modern syncopation. 

Next Sunday, Mr. Boyd Ringo, 
pianist, and Mr. Otis Gruber, tenor, 
will appear on the program. 



Annual Exkibltlon, Held at Topeka laat 
Week, on Much Larger Scale tkan 
Formerly— Stepa Taken to Per- 
fect Selllns Plan 

How the experiment station and 
the extension service of Kansas State 
Agricultural college has helped Kan- 
sas potato growers to reduce their 
losses from insect pests and diseases 
was testified to last week by Kaw 
and Arkansas valley farmers at the 
Kansas Potato show, Topeka, In re- 
ports on spray and seed treatment 
tests. Growers of Irish and sweet 
potatoes reported particularly large 
Increases in yield through seed treat- 
ment with corrosive sublimate. 

Charles Speaker of Kansas City, 
whose yield of sweet potatoes had 
sometimes been cut down from a 
normal yield of 300 bushels an acre 
to 75 bushels an acre by black rot, 
controlled the disease last year by 
seed treatment and bin fumigation. 
A particularly large difference In 
sweet potato yield of 300 bushels an 
acre between plots from treated and 
untreated seed was reported by Clif- 
ford Pine of Lawrence. These grow- 
ers followed the seed treatment dem- 
onstrated in farm bureau meetings. 


Grant Kelsey of Topeka reported 
substantial increases in potato yield 
from bordeaux mixture sprays on a 
test plot run in cooperation with the 

The potato show was much larger 
than the first show last year. One 
hundred fifty exhibits were entered. 
Forty of these were Kansas grown 
Irish Cobblers and 27, Kansas grown 
Early Ohios. M. S. Kelsey of Topeka 
won first on his exhibit of Irish Cob- 
blers and Herman Theden of Bonner 
Springs won first on Early Ohios. 
The sweet potato exhibit filled one 
side of the city auditorium pit. 


One table was set aside for ex- 
hibits of ideal type potatoes from 
several potato growing sections of 
the United States and Canada. Eight 
states entered 36 samples. 

At the Friday meeting steps were 
taken to perfect an efficient selling 
organization within the Kaw Valley 
Potato Growers' association. 

The show was in charge of Prof. 
L. E. Melchers and B. A. Stokdyk 
of the college, and F. O. Blecha, 
Shawnee County agent. 

Fund of »1,000 a Year Provided To 
Carry on Study 

O. C. Bruce, who has been on the 
teaching and research staff of the 
University of Maryland for several 
years and who Is a graduate of the 
University of Missouri, is working 
towards a master's degree in soil 
fertility under Dr. M. C. Sewell of 
K. S. A. C, under one of several 
sulphur fellowships established by 
the national research council to con- 
duct fundamental investigations on 
the agricultural applications of sul- 
I phur. The funds for these fellow- 
i ships have been obtained by a grant 
I from a Texas sulphur company. 
The work will include investiga- 
tions on the value of sulphur in the 
control of potato scab, nematodes, 
soil insects, and sweet potato dis- 
eases. The value of sulphur as a fer- 
tilizer for alfalfa and other legumes, 
and the effect of sulphur on alkali 
soils are also to be studied. 

Applications for the fellowships 
are restricted to graduate students 
or members of experiment station 
staffs. Fellows are expected to de- 
vote practically their entire time to 
the investigations, except for such 
work as may be necessary to meet 
the requirements for an advanced 
degree. Each fellowship will carry 
an annual stipend of approximately 
$1,000, and will be administered by 
a special sulphur fellowship commit- 
tee of the advisory board of the 
American Society of Agronomy, In 
conference with the executive com- 
mittee of the division of biology and 
agriculture of the national research 



Criterion Slngera Give FIrat Number 
of Artlat Serlea 

The Criterion Male quartet made 
its first appearance before a Manhat- 
tan audience last Wednesday eve- 
ning at the college auditorium. The 
first number of the Artist series, it 
was attended by 1,100 persons. 

The reputation of the Criterion 
quartet as being the best in tl^e 
United States seemed to those who 
heard it, well deserved. As a quartet 
it had perfect harmony and excel- 
lent musicianship and each member 
proved himself a soloist of no little 

The tenor solo, "Celeste Aida" by 
Verdi, sung by Frank Melor, was es- 
pecially good. The tenor had splen- 
did pronunciation and clear Intona- 

The piano solo by Miss Elizabeth 
Estle Rucker, accompanist, was viva- 
cious and spirited, and showed ex- 
cellent technique. 

The quartet's repertoire was var- 
ied and Interesting. Familiar songs 
held new interest because of unusual 
arrangements. Perhaps the number 
most appreciated was "De Sandman," 
by Protheroe, and "Drum," by 
Gibson. The humorous selection 
scored a big hit for its cleverness 
and originality. 

Few numbers have given more 
genuine pleasure than did the Criter- 
ion Male quartet. The audience 
showed its appreciation by generous 
applause and the quartet responded 
freely to encores.

Will Head Radio Corporation of Ameri- 
ca — Weeks and PershInK Pralae 
General'* QuallHes — Wonld Have 
Been Next Chief of Staff 

Retirement from the army of Maj- 
or General James G. Harbord, '86, 
deputy chief of staff and one of the 
most outstandinK American military 
leaders In the world war, to accept 
the presidency of the Radio Corpora- 
tion of America, was announced Nov- 
ember 18 by Secretary Weeks. 

General Harbord's retirement be- 
comes effective December 29, and he 
will take up his new duties January 
1. He had been selected to succeed 
General Pershing as chief of staff on 
the latter's retirement and Secretary 
Weeks said in his formal announce- 
ment that the loss to the active forces 
of the army through General Har- 
board's separation from the service 
"cannot be adequately expressed." 


"We have not had in our military 
service, or in our government ser- 
vice in any capacity, a man of higher 
qualities or one who has inspired in 
others a greater degree of confi- 
dence," said the war secretary. "The 
business he will enter is in its infancy, 
and it will offer full scope for his 
abilities. That he will prove him- 
self a great leader in industry and 
commercial affairs seems as certain 
to me as his great leadership in 
military activities. I have an acute 
sense of personal loss in his going. 
His ability and loyalty have been of 
vital Importance to me in administer- 
ing the affairs of the war depart- 

In his letter to Secretary Weeks, 
applying for retirement. General Har- 
bord pointed out that he had been 
in active service for 33 years, "hav- 
ing enlisted on January 10, 1889, 
with continuous service since enlist- 
ment, more than 16 years of such 
service being abroad." 


General Harbord has had the offer 
from the Radio corporation under 
consideration for almost a year. His 
acceptance was opposed by Secretary 
Weeks and other ofBcials, Including 
General Pershing, who made this 

"I feel that I am voicing the views 
of the entire army in expressing 
keen regret that General Harbord 
has decided to go into civil life. His 
distinguished services abroad and 
throughout his lite need not be re- 
counted, as they are well known to all 
Americans. We shall miss him in 
our councils. We wish him the 
greatest success in his new career, 
and I predict that his unusual exper- 
ience as an organizer, administrator 
and executive of great enterprises 
will insure his success in the busi- 
ness world." 


Even higher praise of General Har- 
mord's qualities was voiced by Gen- 
eral Pershing in the following in- 
dorsement made on a routine effici- 
ency report concerning the retiring 

"A superior officer in all respects 
— able, efficient, loyal. His ability 
as a commander is without limita- 
tion. Has a most thorough knowl- 
edge of both staff and command 
duty. The ablest officer I know."

of the book from early manuscripts 
down to the commercial volumes of 
today. This exhibit was lent to the 
department of industrial journalism 
by Ralph Fletcher Seymour, Chicago 
designer and publisher. 

Included in the exhibit were a num- 
ber of books from the widely known 
early presses, such as the Elzevir, 
other volumes showing the commer- 
cialization of book making, chiefly 
in the seventeenth and eighteenth 
centuries, and finally works illustrat- 
ing the revival of the printing art 
under the leadership of William Mor- 
ris. Some examples of the work of 
the Kelmscott press, Morris' own 
plant, and of other widely known 
modern presses, were shown. Sev- 
eral of the books were designed by 
Mr. Seymour himself and printed 
under his direction. 

Modern editions from commercial 
presses showing the influence of the 
movement started by Morris com- 
prised productions of English, Ameri- 
can, French, German, and Italian

More Conntruetlve >Vork Accomplished 

Thnn nt Any Previous Conclave of 

Journalism Fraternity, National 

Officers Declare 

More actual business was trans- 
acted and more constructive work 
accomplished at the eighth national 
convention of Sigma Delta Chi than 
at any previous conclave of the fra- 
ternity, national officers declared be- 
fore departing from Manhattan for 
their homes Saturday. The frater- 
nity met with the K. S. A. C. chapter 
Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of 
last week. 

Thirty-six active and two alumni 
chapters of the fraternity were repre- 
sented at the conclave, 51 active and 
alumni Sigma Delta Chis registering. 
The largest visiting delegation was 
that of the Ames chapter, seven of 
whom attended the conclave. 


Minnesota won the 1923 conven- 
tion, the committee on conventions 
recommending that Indiana be fa- 
vorably considered for the honor the 
following year. Cornell, Michigan, 
and Ohio state sent invitations for 
the 1923 meeting. 

Ward A. Neff, editor of the Daily 
Drovers' Journal of Chicago, and 
vice-president of the Corn Belt Farm 
Dailies, was elected national presi- 
dent. Walter Williams, dean of the 
University of Missouri school of 
journalism and president of the Press 
Congress of the World, was elected 
honorary national president. Other 
officers elected were Peter Vischer, 
of the staff of the New York World, 
first vice-president; H. H. Herbert, 
director of the University of Okla- 
homa school of journalism, second 
vice-president; T. Hawley Tapping, 
editor of the Acacia Magazine, Ann 

Arbor, Mich., national secretary; 
George Pierrot, assistant managing 
editor of the American Boy, Detroit, 
national treasurer. 


The following named persons were 
elected to the executive council — 
Reuel Barlow, member of the Uni- 
versity of Minnesota journalism fac- 
ulty; Paul E. Flagg, Kansas City 
Journal Post; W. E. Drips, mem- 
ber of journalism faculty, Iowa State 
college; Ceroid Robinson, associate 
editor of the Freeman, New York

awarded annually to the member who 
has given the greatest service to Sig- 
ma Delta Chi during the past year 
went to T. Hawley Tapping, national 

That the present forward looking 
policy of Sigma Delta Chi indicates 
the work of the fraternity must 
necessarily extend further into the 
actual field of journalism, and that 
in so doing some provision for 
changing the name of the fraternity 
may become necessary outside the 
undergraduate field, was accepted 
as a policy, marking a milestone in 
the progress of the order. 


The following declaration was ap- 
proved by the convention: 

"Sigma Delta Chi, national journ- 
alism fraternity, declares itself as 
solidly opposed to the debasement of 
the press as an institution and of 
Journalism as a profession by any 
catering to morbid and depraved cur- 
iosity. Its members believe firmly 
that the good taste and intelligence 
of the public are often greatly under- 
estimated, with resultant production 
of publications that neither honor 
journalism nor serve democracy. The 
press will render a distinct service to 
the public if it will moderate its 
reports with respect to transgressions

The Aggie Wildcats forward-passed 
their way to a place in the limelight 
of the football world last Saturday in 
their to 21 defeat at the hands ot 
the Nebraska Cornhuskers. By com- 
pleting 21 flips for a total ot 181 
yards they made a record that bids 
fair to stand for some time, especial- 
ly when it is remembered that Neb- 
raska is the class of the Missouri 
valley and one of the greatest foot- 
ball machines ever assembled any- 

It was a thriller to look at. The 
threat of the forward pass from be- 
hind the Aggie line was 
never for a minute removed. 
The Swartz-Stark-Brandley-Webber- 
Munn aerial five gave foot- 
ball fans in the city of Lincoln a 
brand new conception of what can 
be done with the short pass. They 
also had the redoubtable Cornhusk- 
ers standing around with a good 
deal of white showing in their eyes. 
Nebraska essayed three passes, all 
of which found a home in Aggie 


But that is not all. The Aggie 
lightweights served no little sneak- 
ing-through-the-line as a sauce to 
their overhead drive. Swartz, who 
weighs scarcely 140 pounds when he 
is fat, sneaked through the Corn- 
husker wall once for 13 yards. Stark, 
after three quarters of merciless ham- 
mering from the Nebraskans, put on 
a series of off-tackle cut-ins that 
netted from 5 to 9 yards. Clements 
tore along merrily from the fullback 
position and had several 3 to 8 yard 
dives to his credit. 

The summary shows that the Ag- 
gies negotiated 17 first downs to 
Nebraska's 14 and gained 301 yards 
to their foe's 264. It is quite com- 
forting to Aggie fans and quite dis- 
concerting to those who argue for 
the infallibility of Nebraska teams. 


Nebraska's first counter came in 
the second halt. It was the direct 
result of a ragged kick by the Aggies 
which left the ball in the Cornhusk- 
ers' possession on the 20 yard line. 
By a series of short, sharp plunges 
Lewellen carried the ball across the 
goal. The second touchdown came 
when the same Nebraska backfield 
hero grabbed a balled-up Aggie pass 
from the danger zone and ran 20 
yards to a touchdown. Both count- 
ers were made on lucky breaks for 
the foe. Nebraska's last score was 
made and most certainly earned by 
Noble, who lugged the ball half the 
distance of the field for a finish in 
six consecutive plays. 


The Aggies also made a touchdown 
but it was disallowed by Referee 
Quigley because he detected motion 
in the backfield while the ball was 
being snapped. The Wildcats had

The national convention of Sigma 
Delta Chi, held at the college last 
week, was worth while to the whole 
Institution because the fraternity 
stands for something. It has definite, 
olearcut Ideals, that can be understood 
and appreciated by any right-thinking 
person. It stands for the practical 
betterment of the American newspa- 
per as a force In popular govefn- 

The world Is full of organizations. 
Many of them stand for nothing at 
all, or for something so vague that 
it might as well be nothing at all. 
They occupy a little time, they give 
us a few additional contacts with 
our fellows, and that Is all. 

When an organizatlpn has a defin- 
ite purpose and definite ideals, it is 
on the rpad to definite accomplish- 
ment. In the case of Sigma Delta 
Chi, such accomplishment possesses 
general public significance.

American public. His pocket series

far Justified, that the people will 
read good literature, once it is ef- 
fectively brought to their attention. 
It is a fine omen, not only for liter- 
ature, but for popular government, 
that this man, who knows the Ameri- 
can people from a wide variety of 
standpoints, is willing to bet his mon- 
ey on the theory that the public can 
be trusted, with a little guidance, to 
«ee things aright.

ment that the negro has seldom 
enough capacity to get through the 
public schools and almost invariably 
fails if he gets into college? It 
may be alleged that the white 
boys do not work so hard — but that 
does not mean much. When they 
get out of college, they will find that 
work everywhere counts fully as 
much as native ability.

Literature and Journalism 

E, Haldetnan-Juliui 

Literature and journalism are the same. Good liter- 
ature Is the flower of Journalism. Journalism becomes 
great literature when it reports thef, Immediate but 
achieves more than temporary significance. While all 
Journalists are not llterateurs. It is true that faithful de- 
plcters or Interprfeters of lite — writers who catch srtid hold 
its esthetic, physical, and spiritual values — achieve more 
than a passing Importance. ,, 

After all, what was Plato, aside from his philosophical 
insight, but a great )^eporter? He heard discussions and 
con4u,9ted Jnterviews. He reported what he thought was 
interesting. The fact.,that he did not rush to an office to 
catch an edition means nothing. ,It Is the work Itself and 
not the particular manner la which the work Is dissemin- 
ated, that decides finally wliether It Is stuff of only mo- 
mentary Interest or literature that will endure. Arlstophr 
anes used the theater to pass on his comments on polit- 
ical and social developments. He was a great editorial 
writer. If he were living today he would probably be a 
columnist — and a very good one I believe. I could go 
down the line and characterize .one Immortal after another 
— Mollere, Ibsen, Tolstoy, Balzac, Aesop, Machiavelli, the 
writers of the books of the Bible — and the result would 
be simply this: Great literature is great Journalism. 
Journalism did not begin with the manufacture of news- 
print and the Invention of rotary presses. A vast amount 
of Journalism is found on stone and clay slabs. 

tn iddltlOh to creating as good a Journalism as we 
know how, we try- to go further and become salesmen of 
the truth as we see It. We nbt only manufacture read- 
ing, but we seek alwi^s f 6 create readers. Like the mu- 
nltloii" ma'Aufacturers" who sigh for new wars' that their 
• machinery may 'be kept going full tilt, we conspire, 
worthily, of course, to "create new readers that our 
presses may continue to iurn ' out what we think the 
public should read.

Journalism is an unfenced field. 
The man who enters it faces all the 
chances and opportunities of the fu- 
ture and the malnfold accidents of 
the arts. A man may enter It late in 
life, or, if he enters It early, may find 
that success In sonne other field, some 
adventure, achievement, public ac- 
claim, or the sudd^ii discovery pt 
a special gift may carry i^, new 
man to post or < position over , the 
heads of men laboring tor years on 
newspaper or perlo41cal. Less and 
less do these sudden entrances to 
the high places of the newspaper- 
man's calling prove successful, but 
they remain and will remain to the 
end a possible competition to be 
weighed, considered, and reck- 
oned with in forecasting the future. 

In an art this is inevitable. The 
stage, dramatic and lyric, is perhaps 
the only human calling in which no 
man or woman has won a conspicu- 
ous post after 46, very Infrequently 
after 40, not often after 30, and the 
greater figures have begun before 
20. Of painting, sculpture, and verse. 
It is equally true that they flower 
and fruit In adolescence, and the 
gleanings of the harvest never equal 
the early reaping. But taking in all 
the arts together, for all those in 
which the technic of form is the very 
llfeblood, the conditioning factor of 
Its existence, as in acting, youth is 
indispensable. As the arts diminish 
in technic, the vls6 of youth on the 
passport of success is of less Impor- 
tance. The earlier a man enters a 
newspaper office the better for him; 
but the open door of achievement Is 
open at least to 30, so multifarious 
are the demands of the newspaper, 
so many are the paths of Journalism, 
so wide Is the net of publicity thrown 
that a win is possible and has been 
garnered in all the decades of life. —

On the last morning of the con- 
vention Lee A White sat down after 
a number of fervid remarks anent 
the greatness of the Detroit News. 
Said President Hogate: "Now that 
Mr. White has put forth his annual 
advertisement for the Detroit News, 
and has Justified his presence here, 
we will proceed with the convention.

Donald Clark, managing editor of 
the Northwestern Banker, and editor 
of the Underwriters' Review, Des 
Moines, Iowa, was elected to |the 
office of alumni secretary, a post 
created by this convention. 

Chester W. Cleveland, Chicago, 
was elected editor of Quill, official 
publication of the fraternity, under a 
supervisory board consisting of Preisi- 
dent NefC and Past Presidents White 
and Hogate. The magazine is to be 
published six times a year, intsead of 
quarterly, according to provision en- 
acted at this convention. 

A revised ritual, the work of Lee 
A White and Cyril Arthur Player of 
the staff of the Detroit News, was 
adopted by the organization. The 
revised ritual calls for the use of 
a copy of an American newspaper re- 
garded as worthy of being employed 
in the ceremony of initiation. 

"The use of the word 'frat' is like 
a dose of quinine to me,", said Morti- 
mfer Goodwin of Iowa State, in speak- 
ing of a headline over the conven- 
tion story in the Kansas State Col- 
legian. Mortimer got his second 
dose when he went to Topeka the 
next day and the picture taken of 
the group came out under the follow- 
ing caption in the Topeka Daily Capi- 
tal: "Scribes' Frat Visits Topeka." 

Chilson Leonard, the aristocrat 
from Cornell, spoke often of our 
crude mannerisms, crude journalism, 
and crude humor out here in Kansas. 
He did not, however, say anything 
about our crude girls. "They are 
too darn blas6 in the east," he said.

Roy L. French from Madison, Wis. 
was the only delegate who threw 
dignity to the winds. His exhilara-

that he is a married man with a

"to protect themselves from the in- 
justice of having to wipe the dishes,

Speeches were made by Prof. J. W. 
Searson, formerly head of the depart- 
ment of English at K. S. A. C; Dr. 
H. H. King, president of the Memor- 
ial Stadium corporation, and Presi- 
dent W. M. Jardine. Professor Sear- 
son talked in his characteristic 
vein, describing the difficulties under 
which he found himself, striving to 
be loyal both to Nebraska and to the 

Doctor King devoted the time al- 
loted him to an exposition of the 
need for and the progress of the 
memorial stadium. The eternal fit- 
ness of a stadium as a memorial to 
the Aggies who gave their lives or 
their health in the war was stressed 
by the speaker. 

"There are many reasons." said 
Doctor King, "which can be advanced 
for the building of a memorial sta- 
dium on the K. S. A. C. campus. 
However, I have time now to point 
out briefly only three — the necessity 
for keeping pace with conference 
neighbors, the nbcessit:|r for more seat- 
ing capacity to handle the Ifirge 
crowds which wish to see the Aggies 
in action, the necessity for larger 
crowds and thus larger gate receipts 
in order to meet the financial re- 
quirements laid down by sister Mis- 
souri valley schools for home-and 
home games, and also the require- 
ments laid down by large schools 
from other localities whom we 
might wish to play." 

"For these and for other excellent 
reasons we embarked last spring up- 
on a campaign to raise a half million 
dollars with which to finance the 
building of ^ memorial stadium 
which will seat, when completed, 21,- 
000 persons. In six hours the stu- 
dent body over-subscribed its quota, 
and the faculty went 30 per cent lover 
the goal set. /|^ithi9, a remarkably 
short time $158,000 had been sub- 
scribed by students, faculty, and 
townspeople. Now the call is soon to 
go out to every Aggie and every 
friend of the Aggies for a subscrip- 
tion which will complete the sta- 
dium. The alumni must average 
about $100 each in order to put the 
project across. I am sure that when 
you are acquainted with the facts the 
funds will be forthcoming to pay the 
debt which every alumnus owes to his 
alma mater, and which every Ameri- 
can owes to the war dead." 

President Jardine outlined for the 
graduates and former students the 
rapid, but symmetrical growth of K. 
S. A. C. during the recent past. 
"Watch the Aggie band and the Ag- 
gie team this afternoon and compare 
them with the bands and teams of 
your day, good as those bands and 
teams were," said he. "Then remem- 
ber that the progress shown by the 
band and by the team is typical of 
the whole college." 

company. Commonwealth Edison 
company. General Electric company, 
Roberts and Schaefer company, Hala- 
bird and Roche Architectural com- 
pany. Automatic Electric company, 
and other firms were present to do 
honor to Dean Seaton. After a soul 
satisfying dinner, L. G. Alford, '18, 
acting as toastmaster. Introduced the 
guest of the evening who gave a very 
interesting resume of the latest do- 
ings on the "hill." 

There followed several interesting 
discussions in which every alumnus 
present took part and related his 
varied experiences since graduation. 
To A. H. Brewer, '21, who made a 
noble and oratorical effort to enlist 
Dean Seaton's assistance in dropping 
the cow out of "Agricultural," went 
the first honors of the evening for 
argumentative persistence. 

C. P. Blachly, '05, who declared 
himself a deserter from engineering 
circles, made the point that most 
engineering graduates, along with 
their engineering training, do not de- 
velop sales ability so that they can 
sell their services to best advantage 
and to the credit of their alma mater. 
This viewpoint was in agreement 
with the expressed opinion of many 
of the other engineers. 

When the talk fest was concluded, 
the K. S. A. C. grads looked around 
to find that the waiters had left for 
other appointments and that the night 
watchmen were in charge. Dean Sea- 
ton was escorted to a midnight train 
for Washington, D. C. 

Those present at the Chicago din- 
ner were: Dean R. A. Seaton, '05, and 
Mrs. Seaton; E. H. Freeman, '95, and

Honor In the Eamt — To Brect 

700 BulldlnKs 

A letter from Buffalo, received by _ 
Prof. J. D. Walters, reports that the 
board of directors of the Permanent 
International exhibition of Niagara 
Falls, N. Y. has adopted the competi- 
tive designs of Russel B. Williamson, 
'14, and has elected him chief archi- 
tect of all building operations of the 
exposition. His election to this re- 
sponsible position, which involve.s the 
expenditure of many millions of dol- 
lars, is an honor, not only to the 
young man, but to his alma mater. 
The exposition will be open in the 
spring of 1926. Construction is al- 
ready under way and will be pushed 
energetically, day and night. The 
illustrated pamphlets received by 
several of the departments of the 
engineering division, give an idea ot 
the extent of the grounds and the 
grouping and character of the build- 
ings that will be erected on the 
American side of the falls. The 
stadium, when completed, will seat 
more than 80,000 persons and will 
be large enough fqr extensive mili- 
tary drills and automobile races. On 
the American side there will be a 
fireproof hotel containing 1,200 
rooms with baths. One on the Can- 
adian side will contain 700 rooms. 
Each state of the union and every for- 
eign country will have a separate 
building for the display of its charac- 
teristic products and there will be 
several dozen other buildings for ex- 
hibiting particular classes of pro- 

All general exhibition buildings 
will be constructed of reinforced con- 
crete, stucco and steel and all will 
have extensive basements in which 
the exhibitors can store and arrange 
their displays and then raise them 
Into place. This arrangement will 
do away with much of the incon- 
venience and litter usually found In 
exhibition halls. At night the two 
hundred large and five hundred 
smaller buildings will be illuminated 
by thousands of electric lights. Wide 
drives and many open squares will 
take care of the endless procession 
of automobiles which the fair and 
Its background — ^the Niagara Falls — 
will attract.

Aggies at Iowa State Meet 

"The Kansas Aggie spirit was very 
much in evidence at a dinner of the 
K. S. A. C. alumni at Iowa State" col- 
lege on the evening of October 28. 
Twenty-four Aggies and guests were 
present. The singing of 'Alma Ma- 
ter' followed by a rousing 'Jay Rah' 
gave to the meeting the Aggie enthu- 
siasm. James Cunningham, '05, 
toastmaster, was most successful in 
maintaining the Aggie atmosphere. 
He called upon each Aggie present to 
relate incidents of his class activities. 

One, C. V. Holsinger, '95, played 
on the first K. S. A. C. football team.

quet, and Trip to Topeka and 
Lnwrence Among Affaln 

Social features of the Sigma Delta 
Chi convention here last week in- 
cluded a presentation of "The Ser- 
vant in the House" by Mr. and Mrs. 
Charles Rann Kennedy, and a smok- 
er given by the Manhattan chamber 
of commerce Wednesday evening; a 
luncheon given by Theta Sigma Phi, 
Journalism sorority, Thursday noon; 
a convention dance Thursday night; 
and a banquet Friday night. Al- 
though not a part of the convention 
proper, a luncheon given in honor of 
Sigma Delta Chi by the Capper pub- 
lications in Topeka Saturday noon 
was attended by more than half the 
delegates. The Kansas university 
chapter of the fraternity entertained 
the same group at the K. U.-Colorado 
football game Saturday afternoon. 

The banquet and the smoker were 
the only social features of the con- 
vention at which there was a pro- 
gram of addresses. Charles M. Har- 
ger, of the Abilene Reflector, maga- 
zine writer and formerly head of the 
department of Journalism at the Uni- 
versity of Kansas, gave the principal 
address of the banquet. 


"The monthly magazine is the 
short course in culture for the aver- 
age American family," Mr. Harger 
said. "Covering every possible phase 
of human endeavor and bringing to 
Its contents the deliberations of the 
world's greatest minds, it takes to 
the home a picture of the day's 
thought, adventure, and entertain- 
ment. The magazine of today is 
edited with great appreciation of the 
public's demand and with a keen 
comprehension of the things worth 

"We do need In this country a 
standard of literary taste that will 
make impossible some magazines dis- 
played on every news shelf, flashy 
publications pandering to low moral 
standards. We talk much of reform- 
ing the motion pictures; there is 
Just as much need of abolishing the 
vicious magazine as there is of ban- 
ishing the vicious film. 


"Public taste is to some degree in- 
fluenced by the pocketbook. The 
poor magazines are cheap, in price 
as well as in content. Whatever the 
desirability of a good five cent cigar, 
the country needs also a good ten 
cent magazine." 

Others who appeared on the toast 
list were E. Haldeman-Jullus, pub- 
lisher, Girard, Kansas; Kenneth C. 
Hogate, of the editorial staff of the 
Wall Street .Tournal and retiring 
national president of the fraternity; 
Ward E. Neff, president elect of the 
fraternity; Clif Stratton, managing 
editor of the Topeka Daily Capital; 
F. W. Beckman, head of the depart- 
ment of industrial journalism, Iowa 
State college, and retiring honorary 
national president of the fraternity; 
Lee A White, of the editorial staff 
of the Detroit News, past national 
president; H. H. Herbert, director of 
the school of journalism, University 
of Oklahoma, second vice-president; 
and Charles Dillon, Association of 
Railway Executives, New York City, 
founder of the department of indus- 
trial journalism at Kansas State Ag- 
ricultural college. Nelson Antrim 
Crawford, head of the department of 
journalism at Kansas State Agricul- 
tural college, was toastmaster. 


Mr. E. Haldeman-Jullus discussed 
certain phases of his publishing busi- 
ness, emphasizing an explanation of 
the suspension of the Appeal to Reas- 
on, announced only a few days pre- 
vious. He declared that he never 
had been enough Interested in the 
policies of the publication to give his 
best work to it and that in substitut- 
ing for the Appeal a magazine which 
had as its aim the education of the 

public, he came nearer to satisfying 
his Interests and ideals of what the 
pXiblic wanted and needed. 

He declared that the country had 
been reformed to death. 

"Why, I am so good that I can- 
not look an honest sinner in the 
face," Mr. Haldeman-Jullus whimsi- 
cally remarked. 

The substitution of education for 
reform was advocated by the speaker. 


Mr. Hogate, Mr. Neff, and Mr. 
Herbert spoke briefly upon the Ideals 
and purposes of the fraternity. Mr. 
Bechman gave the presentation 
speech for the efficiency cup. Mr. 
White gave an inspiring account of 
the life and character of a journalist 
who has achieved distinction in the 
profession despite a serious physical 
handicap. Mr. Dillon, in a remini- 
scent mood, recounted anecdotes 
from his rich newspaper experience. 
Mr. Stratton, who was to represent 
the Capper publications as host of 
the delegates the following day, de- 
livered the invitation in the name of 
his organization. 

Three minute talks were given by 
local speakers at the smoker Wednes- 
day night. F. W. Jensen, secretary 
of the Manhattan chamber of com- 
merce, was chairman. Dean J. T. 
Willard of the college, R. P. McCul- 
loch of the Manhattan Chronicle, 
and Prof. H. W. Davis of the college 
were on the short program. 


It's Poor Saleamanahip to Take Aver- 

age of Boobery aa One'* Objective, 

Girard PublUher Declares 

"Practically all book sellers and 
publishers have made a serious mis- 
take in dubbing the people a mass 
of yokels. While the world Is ter- 
ribly crowded with boobs, I think It 
is poor salesmanship to take the av- 
erage of boobery as one's objective. I 
do not think It Is necessary to talk 
down to one's public." 

Thus did E. Haldeman-Jullus of 
Girard, publisher, novelist, and critic, 
speaking under the auspices of Sig- 
ma Delta Chi to a group of delegates 
and college faculty and students In 
recreation center Friday, take excep- 
tion to a theory current among a large 
class of writers and editors. 

"Consider, for a moment, the kind 
of books' that have been best sellers 
during the past few years — Wells' 
'Outline of History,' Van Loon's 'The 
Story of Mankind,' 'If Winter Comes,' 
'Main Street,' 'The Mirrors of Down- 
ing Street,' and now Professor Thom- 
son's 'Outline of Science,' " he con- 
tinued. "On the other hand, consid- 
er how dismally Harold Bell Wright's 
last novel failed. 'If Winter Comes' 
beat Wright more than two to one. 
So did 'The Outline of History.' With 
all its advertising and its background 
of commercial success, Wright's last 
was a serious financial loss. While it 
is true that we do not seem as cul- 
tured as Europeans, still the fact re- 
mains that we do not wish to remain 
low-brows. The people are ready for 
the very best — the finest in science, 
philosophy, drama, fiction."

The stock Judging teams from K. 
S. A. C. coached by Professor Bell 
have made unusual records during 
the past few years. For three suc- 
cessive times Bell's teams won first 
at the National Western Livestock 
show In Denver, making the $500 
college challenge cup the permanent 
possession of the college. 


Last year the team placed fifth at 
the International Livestock exhibi- 
tion held In Chicago, with 21 teams 
from the United States and Canada 

The members of the team will 
spend the time prior to the Interna- 
tional Livestock exhibition at Chl- 
icago, December 2, visiting the agricul- 
tural colleges in Missouri, Iowa, and 
Illinois, and about 15 livestock farms 
enroute. The Kansas State Agricul- 
tural college team will compete in 
the student contest at the Interna- 

er, tenor, and Helen M. Colburn, ac- 
companist, of the faculty in recital 
Sunday afternoon at the auditorium. 

Mr. Ringo's numbers had all the 
tone quality, fluent technique, and 
fine interpretation that persons who 
have heard Mr. Ringo before expect 
of his playing. His rendition of the 
last movement of the G minor "Sona- 
ata" by Schumann was unusually 
good. The sonatina by Ravel, mod- 
ern French composer, with its veiled 
tones was an interesting example of 
music impression. Mr. Ringo's last 
number, "Etude en forme de Valse" 
by Salnt-Saens showed much bril- 
liance and versatility on the part of 
the pianist. 

Mr. Gruber's program was unusual 
for Its variety. His first selection 
was a recitative and aria from 
"Elijah" by Mendelssohn. In this 
number, Mr. Gruber's voice had ex- 
cellent tone quality that was especial- 
ly well adapted to this type of song. 
Perhaps the most appreciated num- 
ber was the unique song, "Rain" by 
Curran. The delicate accompani- 
ment by Miss Colburn made it very 

Many townspeople and members 
of the faculty are taking advantage 
of these excellent programs. Stu- 
dent attendance is light. 

Miss Lois Manning, contralto, 
and Miss Helen Hannen, violinist will 
appear on next Sunday's program.

worked the ball to the Nebraska 11 
yard line by a good mixture of pass, 
dive and wriggle. Swartz ordered 
Stark over the line, pulled himself 
back ten yards and shot as neat a 
spiral as anybody ever saw, over to 
his accomplice. It was a beautiful 
bit of football, but it resulted in a 
five-yard penalty instead of a touch- 
down. Another break in the Neb- 
raska column. 

It was a great day, a great game, 
and a great performance for the for- 
ward-passing Aggies. It was perhaps 
the least inglorious defeat ever suf- 
fered by a football team. Every one 
of the 8,000 onlookers went away 
convinced that the 21 to score did 
not indicate the relative strength of 
the two teams with the least accur- 
acy. With an even break of luck it 
would have made a beautiful tie

Paat President of Sigma Delta Chi De- 
fenda Newapapera In Addreaa Be- 
fore K. S. A. C. Stndenta 

"The miracle of modern Journal- 
ism lies not so much In the triumphs 
over obstacles of time and space In 
the gathering and dissemination of 
news, as in the accuracy of the 
press," said Lee A White of the edi- 
torial staff of the Detroit News, past 
president of Sigma Delta Chi, at the 
student assembly last Thursday. 
"This runs counter to popular opln- 
Inon largely because error is conspic- 
uous while accuracy Is taken for 
granted, expected, and not noticed. 
The newspaper editor and reporter 
are engaged in a never ending war 
upon those who, out of motives of 
self interest or prejudice, are en- 
gaged in a constant conspiracy either 
to spread untruth or to conceal 
truth. To the newspaper man the 
world often seems to be made up of 
two classes — those who are trying to 
break into print and those who are 
conniving to escape the light of pub- 
licity. To defeat the unworthy pur-* 
poses of both classes is one of the 
important functions of journalist. 

"A good deal is said of the press 
of yesterday, and of the men whose 
names are familiar to history for 
their journalistic enterprise. But 
nothing is more certain to the man 
who will study the newspaper files 
of 25, 50, and 75 years ago than that 
America never knew as worthy, as 
honorable, as interesting, and as 
socially serviceable a press as that of 
today. Constant reference to the im- 
aginary qualities of the press of the 
past century is but a species of an- 
cestor worship." 

Holton In Radio Addreaa Declarea It 

Belonga In Same Period aa Sod 

Honae and Cradle 

"In the 'Heart of America,' with 
Kansas City as its trade capital, 
there are 1,760,000 boys and girls 
in the public schools. About 1,000,- 
000 of them are in one room schools. 
The one room school as an education- 
al institution belongs in the period of 
national development with the cradle 
as a harvester, the double shovel as 
a cultivator, and the sod house as a 
farm home. It does not give the 
farm boys and girls an educational 
opportunity equal to that given to city 
boys and girls." 

In this manner did E. L. Holton, 
head of the department of education 
and dean of the summer school of 
Kansas State Agricultural college, 
point out one of the problems of edu- 
cation in the middle west in an ad- 
dress broadcasted by the radio send- 
ing station of the Kansas City Star 
last Saturday. The next K. S. A. C. 
speaker In the Star's series will be 
Walter Burr, professor of sociology. 

"The teacher In the one room 
school is a girl without experience 
and without training for her work," 
Dean Holton continued. "This girl 
teacher has the most difficult job in 
the entire field of teaching. She has 
no supervision; has no principal to 
act as a buffer between her and the 
public In the control of her school; 
she teaches 25 to 30 recitations a 
day; she direct the playground work; 
she is asked to make her school house 
a social center, to teach agriculture, 
manual training, cooking, sewing, 
music, drawing, and art. Is it any 
wonder that the modern educational 
tests show that the farm boys and 
girls in the one-room schools are 
about 60 per cent as efficient in read- 
ing, writing spelling and arithmetic 
as the city boys and girls? 

"The one room school is a 'hang- 
over' from the middle half of the 
nineteenth century. It is undemocra- 
tic and unfair, because it does not of- 
fer the farm boys and girls an edu- 
cational opportunity equal to that of- 
fered to the city boys and girls. It is 
unsafe, because it Is driving the 
farmers who believe in education for 
their children to the cities. A recent 
survey shows that 92 per cent of the 
farmers who have moved to the cities 
gave as a major reason, 'the city of- 
fers a better opportunity for the edu- 
cation of the children.' The solu- 
tion of the rural school problem Is 
the consolidation of the one room 
schools into large community schools, 
with six years of elementary school, 
three years of junior high school, and 
three years of senior high school."

Comparative scores Indicate the 
Kansas Aggies will have a tough bat- 
tle on Thanksgiving day when they 
clash Texas Christian university here. 
The game Is to be played on the K. 
S. A. C. athletic field where seating 
accommodations for 12,000 are now 
available due to the completion of 
part of the new memorial stadium. 
The athletic department is making 
preparations to take care of a large 
out of town crowd expected here on 
account of the widespread interea! 
In the only game of conference or 
Intersectlonal Importance to be 
played in the state on Turkey day. 

The Texas Horned Frogs have a 
little the advantage In comparison 
of scores. Early In November they 
defeated Oklahoma A. and M. college 
22 to 14. The Oklahoma Aggies ap- 
parently are a team of about the 
same strength as that of the Univer- 
sity of Oklahoma for the rival Okla- 
homa eleven played a tie game at 
Stillwater last Friday, 3 to 3. The 
Kansas Aggies played the Sooners a 
7 to 7 tie game early this season. 


In addition to defending the honor 
of the Valley conference against an 
invasion from the southland, the Ag- 
gies are preparing for an exhibition 
of forward passing, the like of which 
will have been seen on few gridirons 
in the country. The Wildcat team 
this year, especially since its for- 
ward passing in the Ames and Neb- 
raska games, has been dubbed a 
"wonder team." Certain it is that 
the Bachman style of open play is 
spectacular in the extreme, and that 
he has developed a combination of 
backs and ends who are exceptional- 
ly good at completing forward passes. 

Little is known here of the 
strength of the invaders. They are 
reputed to have three triple threat 
men in the backfield, and to possess 
also a heavy line. The report is that 
they have failed to realize their full 
potentialities during the season, ex- 
cept in the game with Oklahoma A. 
and M. 


A few youngsters will start the 
game. Coach Bachman announced to- 
day. Doolan and Brown probably 
will be in the lineup. The purple 
team will start as follows, barring

In Spite of Stiff Competition K. S. A. C. 

Herd ConieH Away with Hlflrh 


The animal husbandry depart- 
ment of K. S. A. C. was one of the 
exhibitors at the American Royal In 
Kansas City last week fortunate 
enough to be listed ainong the wior 
ners. In fact It was the largest mon- 
ey winning exhibitor at the show and 
the college bred practically all of its 
prize winners. 

This year's "Royal" was one of 
the greatest ever held. Its import- 
ance is indicated by the fact that 
exhibitors were attracted from as far 
west as California, as far east as New 
York, as far north as Michigan, and 
as far south as Mississippi. The best 
livestock in the country was exhibi- 
ted at this show and the exhibitor 
that won any kind of a ribbon was 
exceedingly fortunate. Many exhibi- 
tors whose animals were good 
enough to win at some of the state 
fairs failed to win a single prize. 
This illustrates the quality of this 
great show. 

The college show herd consisted 
of four Angus, three Shorthorn, 
three Hereford, and two Galloway 
steers; six Percheron and five Bel- 
gian horses; six Hampshire, six Po- 
land, and four Duroc Jersey hogs; 
eight Hampshire, eight Shropshire, 
eight Dorset, eight Southdown, and 
12 fat sheep; also one carload of 
fat lambs which won the grand cham- 
pionship in the car lot division. Be- 
sides this great honor the college 
won 14 other championships, 36 
first prizes, and 28 second prizes.

men Offered by K. S. A. C. De- 
cember 4 to 16 

The department of dairy husban- 
dry of K. S. A. C. has announced 
its second annual dairy cattle herds- 
men's short course to be held from 
Monday, Dec. 4 to Saturday, Dec. 16. 
This two-week course will cover ex- 
tensive training in the class room 
and laboratory, and with the college 
herd. Animals available for study 
Include many state record cows of 
the Ayrshire, Guernsey, Jersey, and 
Holstein-Friesian breeds. 

Some of the subjects to be covered 
in the class room and laboratory are 
testing Biilk and cream, production 
of clean milk, feeding, judging, hous- 
ing and care and management of 
dairy cattle, fitting animals for show 
and sale, study of pedigrees, and 
keeping records In the dairy herd. 

The rapid strides made by the 
dairy cattle industry in Kansas have 
created a demand for men with spec- 
ial training in care and management 
of purebred dairy cattle. The 
course is planned to meet the needs 
of the established breeder of dairy 
cattle, as well as the man just enter- 
ing this line of work.

Agronomy Department Sends Out Sam- 
ple Materials 

Increasing interest in the teach- 
ing of agriculture in Kansas high 
schools is Indicated 'by the large 
number of requests for assistance In 
such work which come to Kansas 
State Agricultural college, especially 
with reference to the preparation of 
teaching materials. 

One of the services which the col- 
lege renders to the high schools is 
the preparation of type samples of 
seeds, plants, and soils for use in 
teaching agriculture. During the 
past two years the agronomy depart- 
ment of the college sent to Kansas 
high schools 21,191 of these type 

These samples are invaluable to 
teachers of high school agricultural 
subjects, as a study of them is essen- 
tial to an understanding of the prop- 
erties of soils and the behavior of 
crop plants.

Concert Tenor, Native of Pacific Isles, 

Attracts Attention of Music Lovers 

Before RecelvInK Any Training 

—To Give Program Tuesday 

Tandy MacKenzle, American con- 
cert tenor, who will appear at the 
college auditorium in the second 
number of the Artists' series next 
Tuesday night, Is a native of Hana on 
the island of Maui, one of the Hawai- 
ian group, where his father had a 
large sugar plantation. He was sent 
to school at Honolulu, and when he 
finished there, attended the North- 
field seminary in Massachusetts to 
prepare for Harvard Medical school, 
as he intended to follow the career of 
a doctor. 


Up to the time of leaving his na- 
tive Islands he had never sung, but 
at the seminary he discovered that he 
had a voice and used to sing for his 
own amusement and that of his fel- 
low students, though he had no vocal 
training. One day on a visit to Bos- 
ton he was singing for a party of 
friends when a comic opera manager 
chanced to hear him and engaged 
him on the spot. 

In the course of its tour the com- 
pany appeared in Toronto. Stanley 
Adams, the director of music at the 
Eaton Memorial Church there, heard 
the performance and, convinced that 
the young tenor had possibilities 
above comic opera, persuaded him 
to accept the position of tenor soloist 
at the church. He remained in the 
Canadian city for nine months. 


With the outbreak of the war he 
offered his services to the Canadian 
government and made several trips 
to France in the remount service. La- 
ter he went to New York, where his 
voice found him employment at the 
Hotel Biltmore. Henry Ford heard 
him there and immediately took him 
to Detroit. For seven months he 
was constantly in the Ford factory, 
singing daily for groups of the work- 
men at the recreation hour. 

It was John McCormack who first 
gave him the idea that his vocal abil- 
ity was quite unusual. McCormack 
heard him at a week end party at 
Stamford, Conn., and when he 
learned that Mackenzie was almost 
without vocal training of any sort, 
he was greatly astonished. 

"Do you know," the famous tenor 
said to his young fellow artist, "that 
there are not five artists in the 
world who are capable of some of 
those vocal feats you have just ac- 


During Mackenzie's engagement 
at the Biltmore, William Thorner, 
the vocal teacher and discoverer of 
great voices, who has to his credit 
the successes of Galll-Curci, Rosa 
Ponselle and other great singers, 
heard him and took him into his 
studio, where he prepared for two 
years for his public career. The Met- 
ropolitan Musical bureau, managers 
of Caruso, Martlnelll and other 
world-famous tenors, engaged Mac- 
kenzie for five years, believing that 
his voice of unusual beauty and pur- 
ity would secure a prominent place 
for him in the concert world.

At every Thanksgiving there is 
one temptation to be guarded 
against: the conception of thankful- 
ness as complacency. Particularly is 
it a temptation to those who liave a 
goodly heritage, whether of wealth 
or education or native Intelligence 
or what-not. There is no justice in 
complacency about ourselves, our 
possessions, our neighbors, our com- 
munity, or anything else. There is 
nothing that cannot be improved; if 
a thing cannot be improved intrin- 
sically, at least it can be used better. 
Complacency has impeded all pro- 


The meeting of the American asso- 
ciation of Agricultural Colleges and 
Experiment Stations is a tribute, 
paid annually, to the unity of educa- 
tion. And unity of education is a 
fact to which too much tribute can- 
not be paid. 

The fact has been recognized prac- 
tically from the beginning. In the 
Midde Ages few students remained in 
one university. The typical student 
went from university to university, 
absorbing from each something tow- 
ard his education. It was a useful 
custom, bearing witness constantly 
in a provincial generation to the 
fact that education is not the product 
of any one nation or region or view 
of life or state of mind. 

The old custom has been aban- 
doned for the most part. With the de- 
velopment of printing and other 
means of ready communication, what 
facts are available in one institution 
are available soon in all. But that is 
not true of the less tangible realities 
of education, and there is a tend- 
ency among students and faculty 
alike to take a provincial attitude 
toward education, as it it were the 
property of their institution alone. 
All conventions of educators — and 
particularly highly professional gath- 
erings such as the one recently held 
in Washington — help keep in us the 
conception of education as a woi'd 
force, not a provincial activity, as a 
great, ever changing movement, not 
a traditional possession.

The Measure of Education 

John 0. Bowman, Chancellor of tht Univtrtitu of PUtsburoh 

Many students come to the university satisfied that 
they know for what they are fit. Enthusiasm runs high; 
some hold it for medicine, some engineering, some law, 
etc. They are "set to go." They are impatient except 
that each effort is obviously to acquire technical training 
toward their chosen mark. 

This enthusiasm is the stuff of which success is made. 
But if it is allowed to run sheer into technical training 
from the start, it leads to mediocrity and disappointment. 
The reason is that the practice of a professoin is not an 
orderly affair like a recitation. Its limits are not marked. 
Its fuses into the motive force of the community. The 
boy, for example, who would find In engineering the 
means to make the most of himself, must grasp more 
than the application of physics, chemistry, and mathe- 
matics. He must be part of the motive force of his com- 
munity. He must enter into vital relations with his fel- 
lows; he must grasp with intelligence, speed, and sym- 
pathy the point of view of his fellows. He must share 
their lives and lead them to share the good in his. In 
order to enter into this contact, then, he must know 
more than technical engineering. He needs the funda- 
mental facts of economics, government, and biology; and 
he needs literature and language. What he needs is 
sometimes described by the word "culture." His courses 
in the university are, therefore, set to meet these needs. 

The engineer, then, can neither be narrowly educated 
nor can he live in isolation if he would be a great en- 
gineer. His spiritual growth, the revelation of his own 
gifts to himself, and much of the service for which he is 
paid, spring from a human give-and-take. His real pow- 
er lies in his relation to his fellows; and in them, in the 
happiness which he contributes to their lives, he finds 
the object of a devotion which holds enthusiasm and 

Education in engineering or in any other field is poor 
stuff unless its value is measured in terms of human 
relationship. Thoughtful men, in making up their per- 
sonal inventories, count in the last analysis all things 
to be of little worth except what they have done unself- 
ishly for others. No effort on the part of the university 
can be too great an effort in order to turn out men and 
women who have in them an ideal of service.

The I.ndustrialist, which is the 
organ of the state agricultural col- 
lege, Manhattan, Kan., is a very live- 
ly paper since the revolution in the 
faculty of that institution. President 
Will is evidently not intending to 
rust out on a flowery bed of ease, and 
the board of regents is hardly less 
active. They have all publicly prom- 
ised that the college shall not be run 
in the interest of politics, and the in- 
terests of education demand that it 
shall not be run in the interest of 
any ism. A renowned political econ- 
omist once remarked that some of 
the greatest things in this world did 
not have an idea in them, to which 
a philosopher replied, "Political 
economy, for example." We do not 
think that either the economist or 
the philosopher was altogether in 
the right. President Will is active 
in making it manifest that political 
economy is a great thing which has 
some ideas in it. — Public School

I have desired peace, intimately to

To learn by heart things beautiful and 

Cities at night, and cloudful skies, I've

All dim things, layers of river-mist on

To capture Beauty's hands and lay

I have wanted clean rain to kiss my 

Sea-spray and silver foam to kiss my

And, to soothe me, tired winds from the

The newspaper of today plays a 
tremendous part in the life of all 
the more advanced nations and per- 
haps a larger part in Great Britian 
and America than in any other coun- 
tries. And undoubtedly we influence 
each other. 

Mostly the Influence is from your 
side to ours, as witness the vast de- 
velopment In the last 20 years of 
the English popular press formed on 
American models. But perhaps 
there are reactions also the other 
way. We are so like and yet in so 
many ways so diffejrent that we can 
hardly help having some effect on 
each other. One great difference be- 
tween the newspapers of the two 
countries is that the British ones 
are more distinctly political and that 
is largely due to a difference in in«ti- 
tutions. If the house of representa- 
tives exercised, besides its own pow- 
ers, nearly all those also of the sen- 
ate and controlled the president, and 
if besides there were no fixed term 
to its existence and it might be 
driven any day to a general election, 
what a mighty difference It would 
make to the day-to-day interest of 
American domestic politics and what 
an invasion there would be of the 
columns of newspapers by political 
discussion. You would live as it 
were in a perpetual presidential elec- 
tion campaign. I do not pretend to 
say whether this would be an ad- 
vantage or not, but at least your 
newspapers would become a good 
deal more like ours. — C. P. Scott,

The duplicity, i. e., the attempt to 
duplicate, practiced by Ralph L. Fos- 
ter, '20, is detailed by L. C. Moser, 
'18. "On Wednesday of this week," 
he writes under date of November 9, 
"I received one of those little cards 
with pink piping around It announc- 
ing the arrival of Betty Lee Foster at 
the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph L. 

"On Thursday, same week, I re- 
ceived the Kansas home town paper 
announcing the birth of a son, Edwin 
Lee Foster, to same newspaper guy 
and wife." 

Moser believes that a firm, vigor- 
ous discussion of the ethical stand- 
ards of veracity in the newspaper 
profession should be had through 
the columns of The Industrialist 
with Foster in an effort to get the 
facts in the case. 

"This looks to me like a clear case 
of f udgin' — an attempt to run up the 
score, trying to pass Betty Lee off as 
twins," declares Moser. 

Complaints come to this office 
from alumni in the city visited that 
word was not sent to them prior to 
the visit. 

Things rest easier now. The fac- 
ulty is beginning closer cooperation 
to the extent that alumni groups may 
be informed. Two things yet are 
needed the more readily to establish 
contacts. One is the alumni direc- 
tory; the other is better alumni or- 

The directory is in process of com- 
pilation. It has been so for two 
years, yet when published it will be 
notable for its inaccuracies, the rea- 
son being that this office is the last 
to receive notice of a change of ad- 
dress or occupation. The directory 
will not be as pretentious as early 
plans would have it, but it will be a 
directory. If the association funds 
permit, a directory will be issued 
each year, revising address lists an- 
nually. But alumni must cooperate. 

This company employs about 19,000 
men. I have charge of 1,500 men In 
the coke plant. It Is my duty to see 
that they work under safe conditions. 
This plant uses from 160 to 190 cars 
of coal every 24 hours. 

"I was pleased to read of the Ag- 
gies' victory over Missouri. Fine 
work. Aggies! 

"I trust that my countrymen, the 
Serbs, may be able In time to main- 
tain a college of the first rank like 
K. S. A. C, including its splendid 
new stadium." 

Yuasa to University of Kioto 

Hachlro Yuasa, '15, visited the col- 
lege and old friends November 6 to 
8. Since his graduation he has stud- 
ied in the University of Illinois and 
received the degree of doctor of phil- 
osophy. He has recently been ap- 
pointed professor of entomology in 
the Imperial University of Kioto, 
Japan, where he will begin service 
April 1, 1924. In the meantime he 
will spend a year or more studying 
in Europe. 

Entertains Second Generation 'OSers 

Ada Rice, '95, associate professor 
of English at K. S. A. C, entertained 
on November 18, with a buffet dinner 
at her apartment at 917 Osage street. 
Cor the sons and daughters of the 
class of '95 who are attending col- 
lege this year. The students of the 
second generation of '95ers are as 
follows: Marian Chaffee, senior; Carl 
Chaffee, freshman; Dahy Barnett, 
Mildred Emerlck, and Rachel Stew- 
art, juniors; Dean Smith. George 
Wheeler, and Dorothy Davles, sopho- 

When Are Grads Old? 

C. H. Thompson, '93, checking in 
from Massachusetts Agricultural col- 
lege, Amherst, wants to know when 
is an "old grad." "By the last num- 
ber of The I see." he 
writes, "that you speak of somebody 
of '06 and some one else of '08 as 
'old grads.' By that arithmetical di- 
gression I take it that all graduates 
of the ninteenth century would prop- 
erly be termed 'ancient grads.' I 
will be interested in perusing the 
first pages of the directory to learn 
what the other 'ancients' are doing." 


Laud R. Hill. F. S.. and Elsie 
(Blaylock) Hill, '15. Smith Center, 
announce the birth November 19 of a 
son whom they have named Laud 

L. A. Magrath. '20. and Catherine 
(Fox) Magrath, F. S.. Greeley. Nebr., 
announce the birth May 23 of a son 
whom they have named Leo Bernard. 

Henry B. Bayer, '16, and Wihna 
(Burtis) Bayer, '16, Stonehavtui 
farm. Manhattan, announce the birth 
November 13 of a son. whom they 
have named Stanley Burke. 

With a directory in hand, anyone 
finding himself away from his old 
home town may have opportunity to 
renew college acquaintances. 

It is not reasonable that this of- 
fice should be expected to notify all 
alumni In a city that a faculty mem- 
ber or college representative is due 
soon. If a local association exists 
and functions properly it would be 
enough to notify the secretary. 

Aggie Scores In Eastern Papers 

R. H. Van Scoik,'14,Binghampton, 
N. Y., sends a reproduction of the 
October 25 report of the Dairymen's 
League Co-Operative Association, Inc., 
by which he is employed as a div- 
ision representative in charge of org- 
anization and production. From the 
report we glean the facts that the 
association has more than 50,000 
members, operates in six states, and 
that it handled more than $7,000,000 
worth of milk in August, 1922, alone. 

He also writes that "it looks good 
to see some good Aggie scores in 
eastern sport columns." 

Perhaps this is not an advantage 
of organization? But It is. Local 
groups in Kansas are beginning to 
get better acquainted through more 
frequent meetings. And how much 
more it means to those at a distance 
to visit with others who have shared 
the joys of student life at K. S. A. C. 

Assistant to 4,00O Faiiners 

Amer B. Nystrom, '07, writes from 
3 642 Interlake avenue, Seattle, 
Wash., with alumni dues, comment, 
and news of himself and Mamie 
(Frey) Nystrom, '07. "We have 
been mucli interested," he wirtes, "in 
reading the news in the Industrialist, 
and especially the write-ups of the 
games. That K. U. game must have 
been a dandy. I wish I could have 
been there. 

"For the past five years I have 
been in county agent work. At pres- 
ent I am located In King county, 
Wash., the largest dairy county in 
the state, and I have the pleasant 
work of trying to assist 2,000 dairy- 
men in making more money out of 
their 25,000 cows. In addition, I 
help the poultrymen, of whom there 
are more than 1,000. and sandwich 
in some work with the berry growers 
and gardeners. In all there are about 
4.000 farmers in the county." 

And while he does not definitely 
commit himself. Nystrom partially 
promises an Invasion of Manhattan 
within the year. 

As Albino Sees It 

N. J. Albino, a student at K. S. A. 
C. for the past two years, writes from 
Gary, Ind.: 

"I am enclosing a check for $10. 
my pledge for this year toward the 
construction of the stadium. If I 
were a John D. or a Henry Ford. I 
would send a much larger amount. 

"I feel proud to have been a stu- 
dent of K. S. A. C. and would have 
entered again this fall, but have 
promised my parents in Serbia that I 
would visit them next summer, there- 
fore must save for the trip. 

"I am employed at present by the 
United States Steel company at Gary. 

C. A. Scott, '01, To Florida 

Charles A. Scott, '01, Manhattan 
nurseryman, left Saturday, Novem- 
ber 4, for Ft. Pierce, Fla., where he 
will supervise the planting of a 
thousand acres of citrus fruit land 
on his own property. He will also 
assist J. J. Helm, Kansas City bank- 
er, in opening up a 35,000 acre tract 
for citrus fruit groves. 

Clay Lint, '12, a Ph. D, 

H. Clay Lint, '12, was a college 
visitor the week before Thanksgiv- 
ing. He has taken a Ph. D. at Rutgers 
since his graduation from K. S. A. 
C, and is now a special representa- 
tive of the Texas Gulf Sulphur com- 
pany, with headquarters at 41 East 
Forty-second street. New York City. 
He is doing agricultural research 
work with especial attention to the 
fellowships established in 10 colleges 
and universities by the Texas Gulf 
company in order to gather informa- 
tion concerning the use of sulphur in 
agriculture. He Inspected the ex- 
periment station work here, and 
traveled on west. He will spend part 
of the winter on the Pacific coast 
looking over experiment stations 

Clara (Morris) Lint, '11, and the 
two Lint children are visiting Mrs. 
Lint's father, Walter Morris, in 
Wichita for the period of Lint's stay 
on the west coast. 

A New Aggie Coed 

Ralph L. Foster, '22, and Bertha 
(Butler) Foster, 205 East Twenty- 
second street, Little Rock, Ark., an- 
nounce the birth October 30 of a 
daughter whom they have named 
Betty Lee. 

"The little lady arrived just two 
days late to celebrate her dad's birth- 
day and the Aggie tie with K. U.," 
says Foster.

Kansas — According to Graham 

I. D. Graham, for many years on 
the college faculty, and since leaving, 
assistant secretary of the Kansas 
state board of agriculture, is mak- 
ing a bid for the mantle which F. D. 
Coburn dropped when he left the 
board of agriculture. Graham's lat- 
est, a "thumb-nail" sketch of Kansas, 
is reproduced herewith: 

"Kansas occupies the whole of 
North America except that used by 
Canada, Mexico, and some other 
states. It derives its name from the 
Kansas river which is the dustiest 
stream on earth and the only one 
navigable for pedestrians. 

"Kansas is a large body of land 
entirely surrounded by the United 
States. It was the first state to 
mantain a bone dry law and, if it 
were freed from its entanglement 
with other states, it would float on 
the vast sea of fresh water which un- 
derlies It. 

"The state is so long that out in 
Coolldge they consider Wyandotte 
county a part of the effete east and 
dub its inhabitants Yankees. The 
pursuit of the people of Kansas is the 
making of crop records and their 
chief occupation is to keep from mak- 
ing all the money in the world. 

"If Kansas were removed from its 
place the United States would look 
like a peanut with the kernel gone. 

"With more acres under cultiva- 
tion than any other land except Tex- 
as, which has not yet been divided In- 
to states, and more wheat than any 
other political unit in the world 
Kansas had to expand sidewise and 
is now bounded by the lakes of oil 
on the under side and the milky way 
on top. 

"Each year the Kansas hen pro- 
duces more than half the value of 
the output of all the gold mines in the 
United States and more than three 
times the first cost of Alaska, with- 
out counting the large number of her 
yellow legged sons which enter the 

"Though in some places the hog is 
ranked among 'the short and simple 
animals of the poor' the Kansas hog 
makes both ends meat. As a mort- 
gage lifter the Kansas pig is a self- 
starter that always works 'on high' 
with more miles of prosperity to the 
gallon of skim milk than any other 
'make.' while tlie sow Is the embodi- 
ment of Kansas on the rind. If all 
Kansas hogs were combined Into one 
animal he could solve the 'Great 
Lakes to the Sea' problem in about 
two roots. 

"Kansas alfalfa, all in one stack, 
would make Pike's peak look like a 
a golf tee, while her 'cribbed and con- 
fined' corn crop would extend the 
Woolworth building clear to Boston 
back bay. 

"A combination of all Kansas cat- 
tle Into one animal would make a 
cow whose milk flow would replace 
the Great Lakes; whose body would 
extend from the gulf to the Arctic 
and, while she browsed on the green- 
ery of the tropics, her tail would 
brush the mist from the Aurora Bor- 

"Kansans are but a modest folk. 
They admit that there are other 
states of minor importance and other 
civilizations in the making. They 
would not claim the earth if they 
could, because they already have the 
best part of it and have little need 
for the rest." 

Main Business, Farming 

F. J. Habinger, '99, Bushton, 
writes that "with us events are nor- 
mal. I am still producing wheat, 
corn, meat in the form of cattle, 
butter, eggs, and horticultural pro- 
ducts. 1 let such things as being 
president of the Bushton Grain and 
Supply company and vice president 
of a bank be side issues." 

Another Inquiry for "Sunflowers" 

Murl Gann, '19, Is teaching in the 
high school at Kewanee, 111. She 
voices a query concerning the where- 
abouts of The Industrialist "Sun- 
flowers." "I miss it a lot," she writes. 

It "Just Happened" 

A party of alumni "just happened" 
to dine at the Grace Dodge hotel in 
Washington, D. C, on the Sunday 
following the Homecoming game, 
Rosalie Godfrey, '18, writes. Homer 
Cross, '19, Velma (Carson) Cross. 
'19, of Pittsburgh; Robert Hoad, '14, 
Fort Meyer, Va., and Elizabeth Hoff- 
mann, '17, and Miss Godfrey, Wash- 
ington, D. C, were present.

Robin Schedule 

Captain Faval Foval, Wlnfleld, Is 
holding dally workouts with Kansas 
Aggie cagers, although several K. 
S. A. C. basketball men are on the 
football squad and will not be re- 
leased until after the Thanksgiving 
game with Texas Christian univer- 
sity tomorrow. Ted Curtiss, basket- 
ball coach, is freshman football 
coach. He has been unable to devote 
much attention to the indoor sport 
during the football season. 

Letter basketball men on the foot- 
ball varsity squad are H. G. Webber, 
Dodge City, and Captain Ray D. 
Hahn, Clay Center, both guards on 
the Aggie varsity five. Arthur Dool- 
en, Kinmundy, Illinois, L. S. Munn, 
Norton, and Harold Gillman, Salina, 
all of last year's freshman basket- 
ball team, are on the football squad. 
Munn is a guard and Doolen and 
Gillman are forwards. 


More than a dozen men are attend- 
ing the dally practices under Cap- 
tain Foval. Andy McKee, Manhat- 
tan; F. C. Healea, Wichita; P. P. 
Rumold, Manhattan; Fred Schultz, 
Wathena, are out for center. McKee 
is a letter man from last year. Hea- 
lea was on the squad of the past 
season and the other men were fresh- 

For guards Captain Foval has J. 
F. Gartner, Manhattan; R. C. Lane, 
Kansas City, Mo.; and L. O. Slnder- 
son, baseball captain elect, Manhat-

squad, Gartner from the freshmen, 
and Lane, although a junior in col- 
lege. Is a new man. 


K. R. Bunker, Kansas City, Mo.; 
C. E. Long, Hutchinson; and Loraine 
Staley, Garden City, are from the 
yearlings of last season. E. H. Brad- 
ley, Wlnfleld, was a member of the 
'19-'20 freshmen, but was not in 
school last year. L. W. Grothusen, 
Ellsworth, played in several of last 
year's games and M. Dobson, Win- 
field, is a letter man from last year. 
All these candidates are working out 
as forwards. 

C. G. Kuykendall, Twin Falls, Ida- 
ho, track captain elect, will be in 
school next semester and may be 
out for the team. He won his letter 
in •20-'21. 


The Aggies have six games before 
the opening of the second semester.

grass. The Sudan was planted on 
bottom land, May 12, and was sown 
at the rate of 40 pounds per acre. 
A good thick stand was secured. The 
seven cows were turned In on June 
17 and taken out September 1. 

The average milk production of the 
seven cows was 26 pounds per cow 
per day. One cow was dry 12 days, 
prior to giving birth to twin calves 
and another was dry 26 days before 
calving. The cows gained a total 
weight of 92 pounds during the per-

In addition to the Sudan grass 
pasture the cows received daily one 
pound of concentrates, composed of 
a mixture of 400 pounds of ground 
Kafir; 200 pounds of bran; and 100 
pounds of cottonseed meal, to every 
five pounds of milk produced per day. 






Graslngr Experiment Ileiinlta Are An- 
nounced at Fort Hnya 

Sudan grass is proving its worth 
as a pasture grass to the farmers of 
western Kansas and will no doubt aid 
in filling the gap made by plowing 
up the buffalo grass which has in the 
past supplied this necessary element 
to the success of the man with a 
few cows, according to L. C. Alcher, 
superintendent of the Fort Hays 
branch of the state agricultural ex- 
periment station. 

The Fort Hays station has just 
concluded a pasture experiment 
wherein seven Holstein cows were 
pastured on 7.4 acres of Sudan 

Pntrona Note Beauty of Newly Opened 

"The most attractive public din- 
ing room in the state," remarked 
many patrons of the new Kansas 
State Agricultural college cafeteria 
which was opened yesterday to the 
students and faculty. The new build- 
ing, artistically designed, well con- 
structed,' and efficiently equipped, 
was erected at a cost of $125,000. 
Delay in the shipment of building 
materials due to strike conditions 
was responsible for the postponed 
opening of the cafeteria. 

The building was designed by R. 
L. Gamble, state architect, and the 
placing of equipment was worked 
out by Miss Hildegarde Kneeland, 
head of the department of house- 
hold economics, and Miss EflSe May 
Carp, director of the cafeteria. 

The new building, which has been 
under construction since last fall, is 
situated directly east of the Nichols 
gymnasium. It is placed against a 
clump of trees on the downward 
slope of the campus so that the view 
of the building from any approach is 
very pleasing. It is a two story 
structure. The main dining room 
and kitchen are on the first floor. 

The large, well arranged kitchen 
is on the south and is lighted by win- 
dows on three sides — south, west, 
and east. On either side of the 
kitchen are the offices of the direc- 
tor and assistant director. 

Interest centers at present on the 
cafeteria proper, since the tea room 
and bakery will not be in operation 
until some time later in the year. 
The cafeteria dining room has di- 
mensions of 97 by 30 feet and will 
seat 250 persons at one time. The 
alcove effect at either end, the arched 
windows, and the columns which sep- 
arate the counter passageway from 
the dining room itself lend strength 
and beauty to the room. The floors 
are of magnestone composition in 
tans and browns. The woodwork is 
finished in ivory throughout. The 
counter passageway may be ap- 
proached from the west and east en- 
trances, double service being thus 
provided along a single counter. 


No Market Kxpenae — Sprnyinc and 
Picking Coat 9130 

Ed Hauser, a farmer near Nash- 
ville, Kingman county, does not live 
in an orchard section but this fall 
he made a net Income of more than 
$600 from a two and one-half acre 
orchard. The 932 bushels of apples 
which he picked sold for $732. The 
cost of spraying and picking was 
about $130. The record was taken 
from Mr. Hauser's answer to a ques- 
tionnaire on orchard spraying sent 
out by L. C. Williams, extension 
horticulturist at the Kansas State 
Agricultural college. 

Mr. Hauser's orchard is on black 
bottom land. Among the varieties 
of apples are Gano, Winesap, Grimes 
Golden, Ben Davis, and Maiden Blush. 
He gave the orchard five sprays. He 
had no expense in marketing his ap- 
ples as buyers came to the farm for 

American Homea Keep Rooma at High 

Tcmperatnrc^-6S DeKreea for LIt- 

Inar Rooma Preferable— Dry 

Air Vnhealthfnl 

Methods of firing the furnace or 
stove are important in effecting fuel 
economy. By the observance of a 
few simple principles a considerable 
saving in the winter's fuel bill is 
easily accomplished. 

The temperature found to be the 
most comfortable and most health- 
ful is 68 degrees F. for living rooms 
and 60 degrees for other rooma. 
American homes as a rule keep more 
rooms heated and keep them at a 
higher temperature than is common 
in foreign countries. 


Firing should be at regular and 
frequent intervals, with the fuel 
burning slowly. Keep the fire burn- 
ing evenly all over the grate and keep 
the ash pit clean. Ashes below the 
grate interfere with the draft and 
may result in warping the grate. A 
layer of ashes under the active fuel 
bed prevents fuel from burning too 
rapidly In -mild weather. In cold 
weather the fire pot should be well 
filled with fuel. 

The air should be kept humid, be- 
cause dry air causes rapid evapora- 
tion of moisture from the bodies of 
the occupants and produces a feel- 
ing of coldness. Dry air also cracks 
the furniture and woodwork. 

Chimneys should extend at least 
two feet above the highest point of 
the house and should be straight. In 
banking a fire heap the coal just in 
front of the fire door, and do not 
cover the entire fuel bed. Wetting 
coal decreases fuel economy. Calcu- 
lations indicate that for every ten 
per cent of moisture in the coal, one 
per cent of the heating value is lost. 

In burning soft coal more air is 
required for combustion. When soft 
coal is first fired gas Is driven off 
from the coal and air must be ad- 
mitted above the fire in order to 
burn this gas. 

The entire fuel bed should not be 
covered, as the gases given off may 
result in an explosion. Heaping the 
coal in the front of the fuel bed la 
the best method. This results in cok- 
ing the coal and causing the gases 
to be ignited as soon as they are 
given off, thus lessening the danger 
from explosions and utilizing the 
heating value of the gases. 


The fuel bed should be kept free 
from clinkers, as clinkers reduce the 
intensity of the draft, but the fuel 
bed should be poked as little as pos- 
sible. Smaller sized coal usually 
will be found to be more economical 
than large lump coal. 

Semianthracite and anthracite 
coals give off little gas and do not 
require as much air admitted above 
the fuel bed as do soft coals. Hard 
coal requires a stronger draft, there- 
fore the grate should be kept free 
from ash. It is better to keep the 
grate clean by shaking than by pok- 
ing the fuel bed from the fire door. 

cobs. When only one or two cows 
are to be watered, a teakettle of boil'- 
ing water will take the chill off of 
the half barrel of water necessary 
for them. 





Hcntern Which Burn Coal, Wood, or 
Corncoba Vaed 

Although people drink large quan- 
tities of ice water in summer they do 
not like it in cold weather. But 
the only Ice water that dairy cows 
get is in winter, and they like it then 
as little as do human beings, accord- 
ing to C. R. Gearhart, extension dairy- 
man at the Kansas State Agricultural 

Cows producing milk require large 
quantities of water. They will dimin- 
ish their milk «low rather than drink 
cold water so often furnished them. 

Water which is stored in tanks in 
winter should be warmed with a tank 
heater, says Mr. Gearhart. These are 
made to burn coal, wood, or corn-

The religious extension depart- 
ment of the Kansas State Agricul- 
tural college Y. M. C. A. has a 
greater work before It this year than 
ever before, according to Dr. A. A. 
Holtz, secretary of the college "Y." 
So many calls have been received for 
the gospel team, which works in con- 
nection with this department, that It 
will be necessary to organize a second 
team in order to fill all the calls. 

The work of the gospel team is 
to go into a church and hold services 
in the absence of the minister, or 
to hold services in a community 
where there is no church and no 
pastor. Most of the calls for the 
gospel team have come from churches 
which were temporarily without a 

The first trip taken this year was 
Sunday, November 19, when the gos- 
pel team went to Wamego and con- 
ducted both morning and evening ser- 
vices at the Methodist church. This 
church has been holding a series of 
evangelistic sermons. One of the 
features of the program arranged by 
the team was a male quartet. Short 
testimonies were given by the men 
after which Penn S. Chambers, Quen- 
emo, delivered the sermon. 

The gospel team has been asked 
to conduct services at Junction City, 
Clay Center, Concordia, Mankato, 
and Haskell institute. Last year the 
gospel team and Individuals connec- 
ted with the Y. M. C. A. at Manhat- 
tan, held services in 20 churches in 
the state.

"The term, 'small town stuff, 
spoken first In derision, la taking 
its place as a slogan of honor," de- 
clared Walter Burr, K. S. A. C. pro- 
fessor of sociology in an address 
broadcasted by the Kansas City Star 
last Saturday. The next college 
speaker on the Star series has not 
been announced. 

"American affairs are to a great 
extent dominated by the people of the 
small towns," Burr continued. The 
cities make themselves felt and 
heard most noticeably but the per- 
manent Influence upon our life rests 
with the towns. This is true in mere 
point of numbers, which in a repre- 
sentative democracy should be grant- 
ed some significance. Only 1,500 
places in the United States have the 
right to call themselves cities, where- 
as more than 75,000 towns have been 
builded and are maintained by our 


"To many city observers, the small 
town seems to be a separate and 
distinct entity in itself. This Is not 
true to fact. The farmer does not 
live merely in a no-man's-land, in a 
dangerous position between the lines 
of action of the city on the one hand 
and the small town on the other. 
His life activities center to a large 
extent in the town. Here are his 
shipping and passenger station, his 
supply store, his cream station, his 
auto repair shop, his bank, and in an 
increasing number of cases, his 
church and his school. 

"The farm population comprises 
one-third of the entire population of 
America. Add to this the residents 
of the 75,000 towns who serve this 
farm group and you have more than 
half the people of our nation. The 
buying power of this entire group 
depends upon the net gain from the 
farm business. Farm Interest, then, 
is the chief interest of the small 
town center. In New England they 
properly speak of the farmers of a 
town because the town limits include 
the farm land and population of the 
area. In Canada, in the provinces of 
Saskatchewan and the Northwest 
territory. Instead of the cumbersome 
machinery of cities of the third class, 
townships, and the like, they have 
the municipality, which incorporates 
the entire farm area of a given com- 
munity, with its town center. 


"In the middle west we do not 
yet have this natural and convenient 
political unit, but we are arriving at 
the same result by the process of 
public opinion considering the town 
people and the farm people as living 
in one community. 

"Since 50 per cent of the pur- 
chasers of manufactured articles, and 
of the contributors to our scheme of 
national finance, are found In the 
small community, the term 'small 
town stuff, used at one time In deri- 
sion by the provincial city man, be- 
comes a slogan of honor. When the 
buying power of the farm people de- 
scends almost to the disappearing 
point, the period of depression which 
ensues indicates the significance of 
small town stuff. The small town 
retailers cease to order from the city 
wholesalers; the city wholesalers 
cancel orders with the jobbers and 
manufacturers; the factories close 
down or run on short time; there 
is widespread unemployment and a 
revolutionary labor movement. All 
this, starting with the small town

Orsanlcation of School Men and Women 

with Membcrahip of IK.OOO Honora 

K. 9. A. C. Edncator — Connected 

with College Since 1910 

E. L. Holton, dean of the summer 
school and head of the department 
of education in Kansas State Agri- 
cultural college, was elected presi- 
dent of the Kansas State Teachers' 
association at the annual meeting, 
held in Topeka last Saturday, De- 
cember 2. 

Other officers elected are Prank L. 


Pinet, Topeka, secretary; W. M. Lie- 
ton, Neodesha, treasurer; Ira J. 
Bright of Leavenworth, chairman of 
the board, and M. G. Kirkpatrick, 
Belleville, vice chairman. Vice presi- 
dents of the association were chosen 
at the four sectional conventions 
held last October. 


Dean Holton, honored by election 
to the presidency of the association, 
which has more than 15,000 mem- 
bers, has been a member of the Kan- 
sas State Agricultural college faculty 
since 1910, when he was made pro- 
fessor of education and dean of the 
summer school. During his admln- 
instration the department of educa- 
tion has expanded until it now has 
seven faculty members, and a large 
student enrolment. 

The department has taken on a 
new importance with the develop- 
ment of Smith-Hughes work — voca- 
tional training in rural and county 
high schools, as well as in city high 
schools, as this institution is pecul- 
iarly well fitted for the training of 
teachers of vocational subjects. 


Dean Holton was educated at the 
Indiana State normal and at the Uni- 
versity of Indiana, being granted an 
A. B. degree by the latter Institution. 
He has studied at Columbia univer- 
sity and at the University of Paris. 
With the exception of the time spent 
in study, he has been engaged in edu- 
cational work since his graduation 
from the University of Indiana. 

He has been principal of the town- 
ship high schools of Henryville and 
Lapell, Indiana, and superintendent 
of schools in Holton, Kan., and No- 
belville, Ind. Before he came to K. 
S. A. C. he was supervisor of indus- 
trial schools in New York City for 
two years. 


From August, 1918, to May, 1919, 
he was a deputy commissioner of the 
American Red Cross in France. He 
was in charge of the reeducation and 
rehabilitation of 200,000 disabled 
United States soldiers and sailors, 
and held the rank ot major in the 

United States army. He represented 
the United States government as a 
member of the inter-allled commis- 
sion on the reeducation and rehabil- 
itation of war disabled men. 

The French government' awarded 
him a Croix de Guerre as recognition 
of his services in rehabilitating war 
wounded. During the summer of 
1921 he acted as a member of the 
commission which made a survey of 
the rural schools of New York state. 


Among the educational societies of 
which he is a member are the Na- 
tional Educational association, the 
American Association for the Ad- 
vancement of Agricultural Teaching; 
the National Society for Vocational 
Education; the Society for the Pro- 
motion of Engineering Education; 
the Society of College Teachers of 
Education; the American Sociolog- 
ical Society; Phi Beta Kappa and Phi 
Kappa Phi, scholastic societies; Phi 
Delta Kappa, educational fraternity. 
He is president of the Kansas 
Schoolmasters' club, and a member 
of the Kansas Authors' club. 

Dean Holton is active in Manhat- 
tan educational and civic work. He is 
a member of the local board of edu- 
cation, and is president of the Rotary 
club and a director of the country

Engineering alumni living in the 
eastern United States got contact 
with the K. S. A. C. of 1922 through 
Dean R. A. Seaton, '04, and Mrs. 
Seaton who stopped off in Pitts- 
burgh, Penn., on their way to Wash- 
ington where he attended the annual 
meeting of the Association of Land 
Grant colleges, and in New York City, 
Schenectady, N. Y., and West Lafay- 
ette, Ind., on the return trip. At each 
of these places as well as at Chicago, 
their first stopping place, meetings 
of engineering alumni were held in 
honor of Dean and Mrs. Seaton. The 
Chicago meeting was reported In a 
recent issue of The Industrialist. 

The Pittsburgh alumni met at the 
home of H. H. Fenton, '13, and Jes

Work to Continue Throughont Winter 

— Three Units of Firat Section to 

be Flnlahed Next Spring — Cam- 

paicB to AlnHinl Soon 

At a meeting of the Memorial Sta- 
dium corporation held Tuesday two 
contracts were awarded, which as- 
sures a continuance tof work on the 
stadium and ground^ throughout the 
winter and spring. •. 

W. B. Stingley, Manhattan, was 
awarded the contract for construc- 
tion of the storm s^er and intake. 
The storm sewer w^ be about 700 
feet long and will ci^oss the football 
field diagonally from northwest to 
southeast. It will d6 away with the 
unsightly ditch at the north of the 
present field and will permit the ex- 
tension of the field and running 
track to the north. Mr. Stingley 
agreed to build the intake for $96 
and the storm sewer for $10.60 per 
linear foot. Joe McKeeman of Man- 
hattan made a bid of $205 for the 
intake and $12.60 per linear foot for 
the sewer. The Mead Construction 
company of Belolt bid $180 on the 
intake and $11.60 per running foot 
on the storm sewer. 


Walter Stingley was also awarded 
the contract for the grading of the 
athletic field. His bid was 42 cents 
per cubic yard for excavation of 
earth and $1.76 per cubic yard for 
rock excavation. H. C. Haney of 
Kansas City made a bid of 60 cents 
per cubic yard for earth excavation 
and $1.12 per cubic yard for rock 
excavation. The Mead Construction 
company of Beloit made bids of 54 
cents and $2.40 respectively. The 
engineers estimate that there are 
14,649 cubic yards of earth and 
1,933 cubic yards of rock to be re- 
moved. This amount and proportion 
bring the cost of the work under the 
Stingley bid to $9,800. 

The construction work on the sta- 
dium itself will soon be suspended 
for the winter. The forms are now 
in place for the fifth unit. As soon 
as this unit is poured, this work will 
stop until favorable spring weather 
arrives. The remaining three units of 
the first section will then be erected 
and this will finish the present build- 
ing program on the stadium seating 


The stone tower on the south of 
the first section is nearly complete 
and the north tower will he erected 
in the spring. The next construction 
work on the stadium will he the 
building of the stone wall at the 
rear. When this feature is added it 
will become apparent to all that the 
K. S. A. C. memorial stadium, when 
completed, will be one of the hand 
somest, as well as one of the best 
stadiums in the entire country. 

Stadium funds are coming in slow- 
ly at this time as the payments come 
due chiefly during the months of 
June, July, and August. The sta- 
dium directors are going forward 
with this work, firm in the belief 
that the friends of the college will 
not let the project languish and that 
the campaign which will be put on 
in February and March will pro- 
vide ample funds. 


Hahn and Swartc Amonir First Choice 
of K. C. Sport Editor 

The Sunday issue of the Kansas 
City Journal-Post contained the All 
Missouri Valley team as selected by 
E. W. Cochrane, sports editor of the 
paper. Two Kansas Aggie players 
are included in bis first team — Hahn, 

guard, and Swartz, quarterback. On 
Cochrane's second team the names 
of three Kansas Aggie men appear — 
Nichols, tackle; Munn, end; and 
Stark, halfback. 

As to Swartz, the Aggie quarter- 
back, Cochrane says this — "Swartz, 
the brainy, crafty quarterback of the 
Kansas Aggies, in the battle with 
Nebraska, displayed generalship, 
craftiness, cool headedness and foot- 
ball ability that won him the place. 
The Aggies completed 21 out of 37 
passes, much of this remarkable 
work being due to Swartz. He pass- 
ed on the run and his tosses were 
fast, accurate, and splendidly execu- 
ted. He ran with the ball many 
times and when hit by those power- 
ful Huskers he took his punishment 
gamely and came up smiling. He 
can kick, pass, and run. His work 
in every game this year has been 
of the same high standard. Swartz 
is little but an ideal quarter, and on 
a team such as the All-Valley eleven 
chosen here would be of great value. 

"Coach Charles Bachman said of 
Swartz after the Nebraska game — 
'If I had been in the game myself, or 
had been allowed to sit on the side- 
lines and dictate what each play 
should be, I would not have called 
one play any different from those 
that Swartz called.' " 

This is the second year that Hahn 
has made the All-Valley. Last year 
he was given a place on one of 
Walter Camp's All Western teams 
Cochrane says of him — "Ray 
Hahn of the Kansas Aggies has been 
an All Valley guard for two years 
and he deserves the place. Nothing 
can be required of a guard that he 
cannot do. Hahn is a power both 
on offense and defense, a splendid 
dispositioned fellow who can take 
all sorts of punishment. He is nev' 
er forced to leave the game." 


Native Songs Especially Adapted to 

Voire of Hawaiian Tenor — Number 

by Accompanist Pleases 

Tandy MacKenzie, Hawaiian tenor, 
appeared in recital at the college 
auditorium, Tuesday night. This 
number is the second of the artist 

Mr. MacKenzie has a voice of rare 
quality. Although it lacks the vol 
ume that some artists have. It sur- 
passes many in richness and clear 
ness. The tenor sang with unusual 
ease and finish and these qualities 
together with Mr. MacKenzle's very 
pleasing personality made each num- 
ber meet with spontaneous and 
hearty applause. 

The program varied from selec 
tions from operas to the simple na- 
tive songs of the singer's homeland, 
Hawaii. Perhaps the best number 
was "The Cradle Song" by Kreisler 
This song was especially well adap- 
ted to the singer's voice. It was 
only when Tandy MacKenzie sang 
two numbers in his native language 
that his audience realized the poS' 
sibilities of expression and melody 
in his voice. One of the most dif- 
ficult numbers was "The Song of 
Grusia" by Rachmaninoff and Mr. 
MacKenzle's rendition of this song 
showed splendid musicianship. 

A very attractive number was 
"Gray Dawn" written by Mr. Mac 
Kenzie's accompanist, Powell Weav- 
er. The unusally interesting piano 
solo by Mr. Weaver added much to 
the program. 

Mary Poison, '16, an Editor 

Mary Poison, '16, was reelected 
editor of The Zeta, magazine of Zeta 
Kappa Psi, national forensic frater- 
nity for women, at the convention, 
which was held in Cedar Falls, Iowa, 
November 23-26.

Farms Are Leased, Practically In Per- 
petuity, Government Receiving 18 
Per Cent of Crops, Dr. N. M. 
Tulalkov Declares 

All land in Russia is now owned 
by the state. It is leased to actual 
farmers practically in perpetuity, the 
plan differing from ownership chief- 
ly in that the lessee cannot sell or 
mortgage the property and the land 
thus cannot pass into the hands of 
large holders. The soviet govern- 
ment is now supreme over all Rus- 
sia, and this land system is in uni- 
versal use. 

The system was explained Tuesday 
by Dr. N. M. Tulalkov, a widely 
known cereal crop specialist, profes- 
sor in the University of Saratov, 
now president of the Russian Stat© 
Institute of Experimental Agronomy, 
Petrograd. Accompanied by Dr. D. 
N. Borodin, a representative of the 
Russian bureau of applied botany, 
Doctor Tulalkov visited the Kansas 
State Agricultural college and ex- 
periment station for the purpose of 
studying the methods in use here. 


In payment for use of the land. 
Doctor Tulalkov stated, the farmer 
pays approximately 15 per cent of his 
crops to the government as a tax. 
This is from one-third to one-half 
what was paid to the owner in pre- 
revolutlonary days when practically 
all the land was held by great pro- 
prietors. The national government 
by means of the taxes pays salaries 
to all teachers, physicians, veterin- 
arians, and other professional men 
deemed necessary for the public 
welfare. Local communities levy 
their own taxes for other local 
needs, roads being the chief item. 

The amount of land which one 
farmer may operate varies in differ- 
ent parts of the country. The density 
of population is one of the chief de- 
termining factors. 


The famine in Russia, according to 
Doctor Tulalkov, has been due prin- 
cipally to repeated drouths in heavy 
producing areas rather than to dis- 
turbed conditions. In certain sec- 
tions drouth occurred, he said, in 
three successive seasons. 

Doctor Tulaikov pointed out that 
the universities of Russia, as well as 
the elementary and high schools, are 
under state control. The president 
is elected by the faculty, subject to 
the approval of the minister of edu- 
cation. The president is completely 
responsible for the operation of the 
institution. There are certain salary 
scales, but men of high attainments 
receive commensurate salaries. 


The University of Saratov, with 
which Doctor Tulaikov is connected, 
now has an enrolment of 6,000 stu- 
dents. All tuition in all the univer- 
sities is free, but students must pay 
their other expenses. 

Stories about the destruction of 
libraries and art galleries in Russia 
are characterized by Doctor Tulaikov 
as without foundation. A number 
of private libraries, belonging to no- 
blemen who had left the country, 
were confiscated, he says, but were 
made a part of the public libraries. 
The government has also purchased 
many books. The government li- 
brary at Petrograd, formerly the im- 
perial library, has now the largest 
number of books in its history, ac- 
cording to Professor Tulaikov. Sim- 
ilar conditions prevail in art galler- 
ies. The present minister of educa- 
iton, Doctor Tulaikov says, is a close 
student of the arts and Is much in- 
terested in bringing them to the 
knowledge of the public.

Give Liberally 

Realization of the memorial sta 
dium Idea, and fulfillment of the 
memorial stadium dream are just 
around the corner. Indeed, partial 
realization and fulfilment are here, 
for four units of the first section 
stand sentinel at the west of Ahearn 
field, and the forms are built for the 
fifth unit. Three more units will be 
built in the spring. 

This first gift to K. S. A. C. came 
through the generosity of students, 
faculty, and townspeople. And the 
Other gifts which are coming from 
the alumni and friends will complete 
the structure, a memorial to the sac- 
rifices of K. S. A. C. men in the 
world war. 

The stadium idea first stirred to 
life when K. S. A. C. entered the 
Missouri valley conference in 1912. 
It was cherished by a few men — Dr. 
H. J. Waters, president of the college 
then, Mike Ahearn, head coach at 
that time, and other practical ideal- 
ists. They dared dream, but after a 
tentative proposition was met coolly 
by alumni and friends they realized 
that the time was not ripe. 

Then came the war, and the sac- 
rifices of American young manhood, 
and of Aggie manhood with the rest. 
Through three years the memorial 
idea grew. Finally a committee was 
appointed by President W. M. Jar- 
dine to settle upon a memorial. 
This committee — Dr. H. H. King, 
Mike Ahearn, Clif Stratton, Deans R. 
A. Seaton, J. T. Willard, Helen B. 
Thompson, R. R. Dykstra, and Dr. J. 
V. Cortelyou — met for the first time 
Dec. 20, 1921. At this meeting the 
stadium idea and the memorial idea 
merged into the memorial stadium 
idea, when Dean Willard made a 
motion that a stadium be built as a 
memorial to the K. S. A. C. war dead. 
The committee became the mem- 
orial stadium committee. P. G. Dal- 
ton, Carl Floersch, Judge F. R. 
Smith, John McClung, and Fred 
Boone, Manhattan business men, 
were made members of the committee 
and helped in planning a three-fold 
giving by the students, the faculty, 
and the citizens of Manhattan. 


Before the stadium committee de- 
cided to make the appeal to the stu- 
dents, faculty, and Manhattan towns- 
people, for gifts to a memorial sta- 
dium, a general letter had gone out 
to the alumni, putting the matter 
squarely up to them. Replies came 
in by the scores. Some few said, "Go 
ahead, I'm as able to give now as I 
ever will be," but the great majority 
declared themselves too hard hit by 
the depressian of 1920-21 to help 
build a memorial. They asked that 
the call be withheld for a year. 

But the memorial stadium call was 
not withheld on the campus and in 
Manhattan. The giving began Tues- 
day, April 25, 1922. In the college 
auditorium the student body gath- 
ered. Dr. H. H. King spoke. He 
spoke tersely but eloquently of the 
Aggie men who "paid the last full 
measure of devotion," and of the op- 
portunity now to commemorate for- 
ever their deeds. Mike Ahearn for- 
got his fund of Irish jokes as he ex- 
plained simply and earnestly how 
much the stadium is going to mean 
to K. S. A. C. in every way. Charles 
Bachman, who has coached the foot- 
ball team through the two most suc- 
cessful seasons it has known, came to 
the front of the stage and while he 
paced back and forth like a restless 
panther his words hurtled forth, 
flashing through the auditorium, and 
burning into the students' conscious- 
ness the fact that the stadium must 
be built. 

The picked student teams passed 



through the crowd, which clamored 
and grabbed for pledge cards. In 
another half hour the auditorium 
was empty. In an hour it was an- 
nounced that the student subscrip- 
tions had passed $60,000. Within six 
hours after the opening of the assem- 
bly it was known that Aggie students 
had subscribed $77,000, and that the 
members of 65 organizations were 
100 per cent for the stadium. 

The faculty had a meeting of its 
own. Various speakers stated dif- 
ferent phases of the stadium situa- 
tion. A subscription plan based on 
a proportion of the annual salary, 
the proportion increasing with the 
larger salaries, was adopted unani- 
mously. The faculty pledges amoun- 
ted to $33,400 — a 30 per cent over- 
subscription of what the members 
assessed themselves. 

TOWN GIVES $48,419 
Chamber of commerce teams took 
charge of the giving in Manhattan. 
A total of $48,419 was pledged to the 
stadium by the people of the town. 
The memorial stadium corporation 
was organized to handle the finan- 
cial and contractual part of the sta- 
dium building, as soon as the giving 
was finished. The directors of the 
corporation are Dr. H. H. King, 
Prof. M. F. Ahearn, Dean R. A. Sea- 
ton, Dr. J. V. Cortelyou, H. W. Brew- 
er, J. W. Berry, C. E. Floersch, Dean 
J. T. Willard, and Clarence Johnson. 
Doctor King is president, Clarence 
Johnson is vice-president; Doctor 
Cortelyou secretary; and C. E. Flo- 
ersch treasurer. 

The corporation entered Into con- 
tract with Walter B. Stingley of Man- 
hattan early in June, 1922, for the 
building of the seating decks of the 
west one-third of the stadium plan- 
ned. Three of the eight units of 
this section were completed and were 
used to seat spectators at the Home- 
coming game October 28. A fourth 
was finished before cold weather 
stopped the pouring of concrete, and 
the remaining four will be erected in 
the spring of 1923.

Dewey Huston, F. S., former Ag- 
gie football star, is teaching geom- 
etry and manual training in the

After Year's Notice Requested by Ma- 
jority, Preparation for BIgr Cam- 
palKn Begins to Shape Itself — Or- 
KUnlze Down to Grass Roots 

K. S. A. C. alumni, after the year's 
notice the majority requested, are 
preparing for the kick-off in the 
memorial stadium game. The start- 
ing signal will come early in Feb- 
ruary. Time will be called when the 
fund is complete. 

Preparation for the memorial sta- 
dium campaign means organization 
of alumni — organization down to the 
grass roots. That is what the loyal 
graduates and former students in 
communities throughout Kansas are 
striving for this month. Directions 
for organization along lines that will 
be most efficacious for promoting the 
stadium campaign, and that will at 
the same time build a healthy alum- 
ni organization ready for continual 
service and benefit in each commun- 
ity where there are Aggie alumni

headquarters to each Individual

Four Kansas counties, Sedgwick, 
Reno, Shawnee, and Wyandotte, have 
developed alumni organizations that 
are actually at work, and a fifth, Mc- 
Pherson county, will organize at a 
meeting to be held December 15. 
Kansas City, Mo., is working with 
Wyandotte county.

The committees and the officers of \

have taken as their first task the 
recruiting of active memberships In 
the general alumni association as a 
means of quickening interest in and 
loyalty to K. S. A. C. A good mem- 
bership is essential to the carrying on 
of the staidium campaign, for it is 
through the organized alumni that 
other alumni and friends of the col-

good work. The prizes In most cases 
are based on either the interest taken 
in the work, the ability of the student, 
or both. The offering of the cups 
and prize money not only shows that

Putnam Most Thoughtful Alumnus 

The month's award for the most 
thoughtful alumnus goes to G. W. 
Putnam, '16, who writes from East 
Lansing, Mich. 

"Thought the association might be 
short on things to be thankful for, 
so I am sending in my five-case 
note," says Putnam. "Just returned 
from an unsuccessful deer hunt in 
the upper peninsula. O. E. Reed was 
in camp about 60 miles from our 
camp and was lucky enough to get 
a bear. 

"F. K. Hansen, '19, is located at 
Marquette. He seems to be getting 
acclimated and going good. We have 
quite an aggregation from the old 
school here now Including C. R. John- 
son, '20, "■Shorty" Hoffman, '17, C. 
C. Dethloff, '21, and N. Pearson, '16. 

"There are enough of us so that 
when any Missouri, Oklahoma, or 
Nebraska alumnus gets a loyal streak 
when his alma mater is playing the 
Wildcats we manage to get him cov- 
ered. Incidentally, the scores look 
good this year." 

Total to Be Given By Graduates of 

American Colleges and Unlveraltlea 

9118,700,800 — Nebraska, Oklahoma, 

K. U., K. S. A. C. at Work 

Twenty-seven American colleges 
and universities are now building 
war memorials, and others are mak- 
ing campaigns for funds which bring 
the total to be given by graduates 
and friends of these institutions to 
$118,760,800. This Information was 
secured by the Ohio State University 
Alumni association which is now rais- 
ing $300,000 for a war memorial 
auditorium. One hundred colleges 
report the amount actually raised to 
date in their campaigns as $89,796,- 

Nearly every endowed institution 
in the United States has embarked 
upon a campaign for funds, the only 
three exceptions among the larger of 
the privately supported colleges be- 
ing Reed college, Portland, Ore.; 
Rice institute, Houston, Tex.; and 
Drake university, Des Moines, Iowa. 
The trend of these campaigns may be 
illustrated by Kansas examples — 
Washburn's successful $800,000 en- 
dowment campaign; College of Em- 
poria's Million Movement for erec- 
tion of new buildings, and creation 
of an endowment fund; Baker's cam- 
paign for $2,000,000, building and 
endowment fund, soon to open. 

The great state institutions have 
not lagged behind. Alumni of these 
colleges and universities are awaken- 
ing to the sense of responsibility to 
their "college mothers" which form- 
erly was accepted only by graduates 
of endowed schools. Graduates of 
state supported colleges are giving 
liberally for memorials. 

In the Missouri Valley conference 
Nebraska and Oklahoma, as well as 
K. S. A. C, are asking alumni and 
friends for subscription to memorial 
stadium funds; Kansas university 
has practically completed a campaign 
for $1,000,000 to be used in build- 
ing a memorial stadium and a mem- 
orial union; Ames and Missouri are 
taking gifts for memorial union

loid form a record of memorial pro-

(onNtructlon of New Building To Start 

Plans designed by W. G. Ward, ex- 
tension architect, and Prof. L. B. 
Call, head of the agronomy depart- 
ment, have been completed for a new 
seed house on the agromomy farm. It 
is to be a two story building, 30 
by 60 feet. Construction of the 
building will start soon. 

The first floor will contain five 
bins for storing pure seed from the 
farm, a space for cleaning machinery, 
an office and work room, and a fire 
proof vault for valuable seed samples. 

Space will be provided on the sec- 
ond floor for storing seed, which has 
been cleaned and is waiting ship- 
ment. The roof trusses are designed 
to carry heavy loads, and they will 
be used to hang seed corn on from 
variety test on the agronomy farm. 

The most successful 
raise most of their cows. 


Lime will add to the productiTlty 
of many Kansas pastures.

The completion of the memorial 
stadium has been checked up square- 
ly to the alumni of K. S. A. C. Stu- 
dents, faculty, and Manhattan citi- 
zens have contributed funds for near- 
ly a third of its estimated cost; the 
remainder is to come through alumni 
contributions and alumni effort. The 
goal is within easy reach if each 
alumnus will make stadium building 
his own project. 

The burden of success rests on the 
alumni office, yet may be shifted 
readily. The whole alumni, not one 
office or group, must work if the 
task is not to be overwhelming to 
the few. 

Deliberately, the project was pass- 
ed on to the alumni. Deliberately, 
the responsibility was assumed by 
the executive secretary's office for 
the alumni association — an associa- 
tion in which every person graduated 
from K. S. A. C. holds membership. 



CoMege Geology Specialist DUpelB 

Recently the remnants of a pleis- 
tocene mastodon were found in Man- 
hattan. The rage for discovering 
things spread, and, almost at the 
same time, a perfectly innocent stone 
quarry near the city, from which 
material for the addition to the new 
agricultural hall was being taken, 
was accused of having -oil in it. 

Specialists were rushed instantly 
to the scene, and discovered, much to 
the disappointment of the pioneers, 
that the sand which had been sus- 
pected of having oil, had nothing 
even faintly resembling It — not even 

The sand had been deposited in 
layers, giving evidence that the cur- 
rent of a stream had at one time 
or other left it there. These stripes 
were a very deep yellow, or clay col- 
or, and thus gave the illusion of oil. 

A. B. Sperry, college geologist, ex- 
plained that the sand had not been 
deposited long enough for oil to 
form, and gave three requirements 
for ground that shall contain oil: 

1. The sediment must orginally 
have had in it a large amount of 
organic material, not entirely decom- 

2. The oil deposit must be covered 
with a layer of some substance im- 
pervious to oil, so that it will not 
leak away. 

3. Conditions and strata of the 
ground have to be such that the oil 
will become concentrated or col- 

At first thought the work may 
have disagreeable features. Continued 
contemplation, however, generates 
enthusiasm. There are no excuses for 
not building the stadium — reasons 
for pushing the job to a successful 
end are overwhelming. 

in the Cameron, Mo., high school. 
He had a most successful season, 
turning out a team that won eleven 
straight games and was not beaten, 
finishing the season by defeating 
Liberty high school for the northwest 
Missouri championship Thanskglving 

Oliver's team defeated the St. Jos- 
eph Central high school team, coach- 
ed by Stankowskl and Packwood, 
former Missouri U. quarterbacks, and 
also defeated a high school team of 
which Bill Collins, another Tiger 
star, was the mentor. They scored 
370 points to their opponents' 54 
during the season. Their record is 
considered all the more remarkable 
on account of the fact that Oliver 
had but two veterans, a tackle and 
an end, to work with, developing the 
remainder of the eleven from "green" 

"Speck" possesses a story concern- 
ing "Jack" Frost, '20, Aggie pole 
vaulter and high jumper, which he 
will tell if properly urged. 

The tale goes that Frost, a senior 
in the law school at Columbia unl- 
veristy, stopped in Cameron last fall 
on his way to New York. Oliver took 
him to the high school principal's 
office. While the three were talking 
one of the women instructors came 
into the office. Frost was introduced 
to her. 

"And will you be in my history 
class this year?" the high school in- 
structor asked the youthful appear- 
ing Jack. 



And it affords that opportunity 
every alumnus has sought at some 
time, to do something really big for 
his alma mater. This office, assis- 
ted and advised by all who catch the 
spirit of the work, is attempting to 
recreate that desire in the hearts 
which have permitted it to wane 
and combine it with the desire 
uppermost in the hearts of the whole 
alumni body, for simultaneous action. 

All alumni who have been desirous 
of exploiting certain projects kept 
constantly in mind, are submerging 
them for this larger conception — the 
stadium. It is a commonly accepted 
thought that every alumnus has cer- 
tain moral obligations to the entire 
alumni body, and that he who will- 
fully neglects them forfeits his right 
to the consideration of his fellows. 
There is something of altruism, then, 
in the motives of those who selfishly 
might have insisted on first atten- 
tion to their pet projects, but who 
now desire first to fulfill the wish 
of the majority. Their own projects 
are secondary. 

So the memorial stadium is build- 
ing as a tribute to the memory of 
men who gave everything that our 
nation might live. That incentive 
alone is intensifying patriotism and 
college loyalty. The thoughtful con- 
tributor is tending to greater liber- 
ality as he develops the stadium idea 
for himself. He finds it not only a 
fitting memorial but a practical so- 
lution of many college problems. 

Upon the enthusiasm with which 
every alumnus assumes his share in 
this great enterprise, depends the 
rapidity of its completion. Each one 
that evades his responsibility doubles 
the task of another who is engaged 
in building this monument to those 
who did not dodge.

"This reminds me of the good 
times we used to have evenings in 
the country school," was a remark 
heard a few days ago at a club pro- 
gram before a gathering of town 
men. Doubtless the program brought 
up similar memories to many men 
who did not express them. 

For generations the school has 
been a center of American commun- 
ity life. It is a natural gathering 
place. The community, rural or 
town, that does not use its school in 
the evening as well as the day time 
is missing something fine in com- 
munity life. 

More elaborate programs are of- 
ten given nowadays than could have 
been presented 20 or even 10 years 
ago. There is more modern equip- 
ment, there is a larger proportion of 
well educated persons, there are in 
many places consolidated schools 
which offer much more extensive fa- 
cilities than are available in the old- 
fashioned schoolhouse. 

The function of the community 
gatherings in the schoolhouses, how- 
ever, is the same as ever. Aside from 
what they offer of intrinsic worth, 
they serve the much more important 
purpose of bringing the people of 
the community together in friendly 
association. Cooperation in pleasure 
is a step toward Cooperation in busi- 
ness, which is of tremendous impor- 
tance to present-day farming, and 
indeed to all present-day industry. 
When the history of cooperation in 
American agriculture Is finally writ- 
ten, it will give an Important place 
to the country schoolhouse, where 
lessons were learned not by the pu- 
pils alone but by the older folk as 
well, and where impetus was given 
toward the realization ot the com- 
mon interests of all country dwellers.

Memorial Stadium: Finer Loyalty 

Or. W. M. Jardine 

The movement tor the building ot a memorial sta- 
dium by K. S. A. C. alumni, students, faculty, and 
friends is entering upon its second phase — the giving 
of alumni and friends outside Manhattan. 

The stadium was chosen as a memorial by a repre- 
sentative committee of alumni and faculty bceause of 
its appropriateness. One can not imagine a memorial 
which would be more acceptable to the war dead ot 
K. S. A. C, were they able to express a preference. The 
stadium will keep green the memory of their valor and 
devotion. They will be commemorated in a structure of 
beauty brimming with fresh, young life such as theirs 

The stadium is more than a huge grandstand tor 
spectators at football games, track meets, and baseball 
games. It is an arena in which to stage pageants, the 
May fete, and military reviews. It Is a site for the 
Ag. fair. It is athletic headquarters tor the college, tor 
in the space under the seating decks are to be rooms 
for many forms ot athletic activity. 

The stadium is sorely needed. None conversant with 
the situation will gainsay the statement that it is 
needed to seat the crowds attending our football games, 
and to make possible more and better physical education. 

The legislature ot Kansas has difficulty to find funds 
to care tor the normal growth of K. S. A. C. and other 
state institutions — to provide tor the youth of the state 
who come for the education offered here to all. 

Now alumni and friends are coming with a gift to 
their school. I see in this the beginning of a finer loyalty 
to K. S. A. C. and I commend the project most heartily 
to our alumni and to Kansas citizens disposed to help 
in the development ot their agricultural college.

the date of the new Monthly Indus-

briefly the following: (1) The col- 
lege needs an organ ot a capacity 
that will permit the publishing of 
more extended articles and reviews, 
an organ that will permit the inser- 
tion of extracts from the bulletins of 
the experiment station, and the re- 
ports of the different departments; 

(2) the magazine form permits of 
the easier preservation and binding 
of the copies of a year, or of a term; 

(3) the work of mailing will be re- 
duced, or at least consolidated; (4)

college professors and all.

Names Added to List of Gridiron Im- 
mortal*, Attendance Records Brok- 
en, Bachman Proves Himself 

Names were added to the list of 
Aggie gridiron Immortals, attendance 
records for Abeam field were broken, 
and Charley Bachman proved him- 
self one of the master strategists and 
coaches of football during the play- 
ing of the 1922 K. S. A. C. schedule. 

But the thing that looms largest in 
the student and alumni mind is the 
fact that the Wildcats fought with a 
spirit that never flagged. They play- 
ed clean and they played hard and 
they gave their utmost, for 15 full 
minutes in each quarter of each 
game. No accusations of quitting 
under fire were made against the Ag- 
gies by football critics, and fulsome 
praise, columns of it, was written of 
their valorous spirit. 


A sweep through the season, a 
panoramic view of the whole cam- 
paign from its inception with the 
smothering of Washburn under an 
avalanche of touchdowns to the Hom- 
eric finish on Nebraska field where 
the Aggies suffered, as H. W. D. says, 
"the least inglorious defeat a team 
€ver took," and the anticllmactic 
Thanksgiving day romp with Texas 
Christian university, intensifies one's 
knowledge of the fact that the Aggies 
fought a good fight. 

Start with the Washburn game, 
the first of the season, which proved 
to be a scoring parade for the Aggies. 
The Ichabods, who not so many years 
ago were hefty opposition for Wild- 
cat teams, crumbled before the tackle 
smashes, end runs, and forward pass- 
es of the Aggies and were buried 
under seven touchdowns, two the re- 
sult of forward passes, and five scor- 
ed by rushes. The feature of the 
game for Aggie partisans was the 
fact that the substitutes performed in 
a manner that indicated strong re- 
serve power in the capable hands of 
Coach Bachman. This was particu- 
larly pleasing because of the fact that 
"Ding"' Burton, star right half, suf- 
fered a side Injury that was destined 
to keep him out of the game much of 
the time during the remainder of the 
season, and was known then to nec- 
essitate a two weeks' layoff for him. 


Came then the first conference 
game, the battle with Washington 
university at St. Louis. Minus the 
flashy but consistent play of Burton, 
and supplied with too much confi- 
dence, the Aggies found the Pikers a 
dangerous opponent. The St. Louls- 
aus were smarting under criticism of 
their poor showing in the game with 
Rolla School of Mines the week pre- 
vious and put up a game fight. Their 
offense was unproductive of yards or 
points, except for the two long passes, 
both of which counted touchdowns, 
the first being over the goal line, and 
the second placing the leath- 
er within the Aggie 10 yard zone, 
from which point it was rushed on 
across. The defense of the Washing- 
ton eleven was well conceived and ex- 
ecuted, but the Aggies scored three 
touchdowns, two points after touch- 
down, and a safety, enough to win 
22 to 14. 

The first reverse of the season was 
the lot of the Wildcats when they in- 
vaded Soonerland the Saturday fol- 
lowing the Washington game. The 
7 to 7 tie with Oklahoma is labeled 
a reverse because the Aggies were 
confidently expecting to win from the 
Sooners. No alibi has been offered ! 
for the failure to win the Oklahoma , 
game, and none will be. The Owen 
crew played a bang-up game, and 
deserved the seven points they got. 
The secret of the Aggie failure to 
score after that brilliant 80-yard 
march for a touchdown in the first 
ten minutes of play lies in the in- 
juries to backfield men which sent 
Axline, Stark, and Sears to the side- 

1922 "K" Men and Coaches 



TOP ROW, left to right — Stark, left halfback; Lasswell, right guard; Sebring, right end; Schtndler, right guard; 
Harter, center; Hutton, center; Tandell, halfback. 

SECOND ROW— AxUne, halfback; Stalb, right tackle; Bachman, head coach; Hahn, captain and left guard; Doo- 
lan, end; Burton, right halfback. 

THIRD ROW — Webber, left end; Brandley, halfback; Jackson, assistant coach; Clements, fullback; Franz, guard

back; Munn, right end. 

lines and left Brandley on the field 
badly hurt but gaming it through 
because there was no one to take 
his place. With these men out, the 
Aggie offensive power was gone. 
However, the line rose to the occas- 
sion, and held the desperate Okla- 
homa assaults in check until the last 
two minutes of play when a long end 
run produced a touchdown. Twice 
the forward wall held for downs on 
the Aggie 4-yard line, a testimonial 
to the kind of fight they possess. 
Linemen, as well as backfield men, 
were battered and bruised in this 
game, Schlndler having to be taken 
from the game, and Stalb and Hutton 
being hurt, but staying on. 


Homecoming visitors, 13,000 of 
them, saw the Wildcats, suffering 
from the effects of the terrific maul- 
ing they took at Oklahoma, get a 
break for a touchdown, then settle 
down to dogged, defensive football 
to hold a tie score with the ancient 
enemy, K. U. Nothing spectacular 
or brilliant about the Aggie play that 
day — except Captain Ray Hahn's 70- 
yard run for a touchdown after he 
had Intercepted a Jayhawk forward 
pass early in the first period. It was 
sheer dogged fighting by the line that 
lingers in the memory of Aggie parti- 
sans. The K. U. backs had the punch 
in mid-field, but Inside the danger 
zone they rammed into a chilled 
steel bulwark. Thrice did Jayhawk 
charges stop short of touchdowns. 
On one occasion the Clark machine 
got a first down on the one-yard line, 
and finished four efforts to crowd 
the leather across at the two-yard 
line. The feature of the game was 
the fact that the Aggies got the 
breaks — the jinx departed. 

With the Tiger tall twisting the 
week following, the Aggies started 
upon their forward passing orgy that 
earned them the title of "Wonder 
Team." Forward passing placed 
Bachniau's crew in scoring distance 
in the second period, and forward 
passing did the same trick in the 
fourth quarter after Missouri had 
gone into the lead with a touchdown 
and field goal, both scored by the 
powerful Lincoln, in the third quar- 
ter. Wildcat scoring was done by 
the line-smashing attack of Stark, 
Sears, and Clements, but the tosses 
:nrhlch bewildered and disheartened 
the Tigers proved an easy and rapid 
method of working the pigskin down 
the field. The Stark-Swartz-Webber- 
Sebring-Munn-Burton-Brandley com- 
bination discovered its potentialities 
in that game, and used the forward 
pass as an offensive weapon as did 
or could no other conference team

Others Who Have Played Last Year 

With Aggies Are Sears, Sebring, 

Axline, Schlndler, Stalb, Franc, 

and Don Yandell 

Nine Kansas Aggie letter men fin- 
ished their football career with the 
close of the 1922 season last Thurs- 
day. They are Ray Hahn, Ira Schlnd- 
ler, J. E. Franz, guards; Leon Seb- 
ring, end; A. A. Axline, Donald Yan- 
dell, Hartzell Burton, halfbacks; R. 
M. Sears, fullback; and H. J. Stalb, 

Hahn and Burton have to their 
credit the honor of having served 
four years on the Aggie team. Count- 
ing this year's "K" they will have 
earned four football letters at K. S. 
A. C. Their first year was played 
with the S. A. T. C. when valley rules 
permitted freshmen to participate in 
intercollegiate contests. 

Ray Hahn, this year's captain, in 
every respect is the team leader. It 
is not always that the captain of the 
team is also one of the stars, as is 
the case with Hahn. He made his 
name immortal in Kansas Aggie foot- 
ball history when he ran 70 yards 
for a touchdown against K. U. this 


Burton's first two years of college 
football failed to bring out his best 
talent. With the coming of Coach 
Bachman to the Aggies, Burton was 
promptly removed from quarterback 
to halfback, where he has played a 
star game. Burton's ability to run 
with the ball and catch forward pass- 
es has enabled him to hold down his 
position with unusual distinction, de- 
spite the fact <hat he weighs less 
than 150 pound.i. 

Sebrlng's last game was that 
against Missouri, an injury having 
been received in scrimmage the fol- 
lowing week which kept him from 
participating in later frays. In the 
conflict with M. U. as in the contest 
against Missouri the year previous, 
Sebring rose to a high point in his 
football career. In the combat with 
the Tigers here last year a pass to 
Sebring enabled the Wildcats to reg- 
ister a winning touchdown. 


Axline will receive a degree from 
K. S. A. C. next June, making him 
ineligible for conference football, al- 
though this is only his second year of 
participation. He played quarter- 
back on the Aggie team year before 
last. He has been playing halfback 
this season. His kicking ability, com- 
bined with other qualities, among 

which is a well seasoned knowledge 
of the game, have made him one of 
Coach Bachman's most reliable back- 
field men. 

When it was second down and a 
yard to go, or when the line must be 
punctured for a touchdown, or when 
a forward pass over center was to be 
broken up. Sears, fullback, always 
could be counted upon. Although his 
position has been hotly contested by 
mighty good football players, he has 
won out as the regular during the 
last three seasons. 


Due to unfortunate minor injuries 
at crucial times in the seasons of 
1920 and 1921, Stalb, tackle, never 
before this year has been able to get 
into enough games in a single sea- 
son to win his "K". His reliability

Aggie coaches to solve satisfactorily 
a situation which, following the K. U. 
game, began to look like a problem. 
Stalb deserves a great deal of credit 
for the right side of the Aggie line, 
living down the reputation of being 
"the weak side." 

Schlndler, 193-pound guard, has 
been an important asset to the Bach- 
man gridiron machine, being the 
third heaviest man on the squad. It 
was largely due to the fight of 
Schlndler and Hahn, the Aggie 
guards, that no adversary has been 
able to gain consistently through the 
Aggie forward wall. Tbey deserve 
much credit for holding Kansas and 
Oklahoma to tie scores when heroic 
defensive work enabled the Wildcats 
to retire from the field with honor.

Diacov^rloa of K. S. A. C Department 

Which He Now Head* In One Year 

Pay (or College from Time of 

ltd Fonndlnar 

The work of the economic ento- 
mologists connected with the K. S. 
A. C. experiment station has saved 
the state of Kansas through reduc- 
tion of crop losses due to insect 
pests, more in one year than the in- 
stitution has cost the state during its 
entire existence, according to Prof. 
George Dean, head of the entomology 
department, who summarized the 
results of the department's work for 
the Manhattan Kiwanis club at its 
last weekly meeting. 

Savings through the application of 
Insect control methods originated at 
the station here, and directed by Its 
agents, have amounted to as much 
as $60,000,000 in one year, accord- 
ing to computations of the United 
States bureau of estimates. 


"Kansas has not been the only 
commonwealth to benefit by the dis- 
coveries of insect control methods 
made by the station here," Professor 
Dean said. "The poisoned bran mash 
used to exterminate grasshoppers is 
used throughout the world in many 
localities. It Is known as 'Kansas 
bait.' Go into Africa in an area 
where there is a campaign for the 
annihilation of grasshoppers going 
on, and they may refer to the poison 
as 'Kansas bait'. 

Other methods of Insect control 
developed at the K. S. A. C. station 
which are widely used, and which 
have been of great economic value, 
are the burning over of bunch grass 
clumps to keep down chinch bugs, 
and fall plowing at specified dates to 
exterminate the Hessian fly. The 
latter method in addition to being a 
sure preventive against the ravages 
of the Hessian fly is also of positive 
benefit to the wheat grower, being a 
cultural measure that will Increase 
the yield, even though the Insect is 
not prevalent In his vicinity. 


"The success of insect control cam- 
paigns would not have been possible 
In Kansas had it not been for the 
high calibre of the farmers in the 
state," asserted Professor Dean. 
"They are willing to cooperate, and 
to do 80 thoroughly. We have or- 
ganized from 15 to 20 counties at 
once, and in a four or five-day cam- 
paign, using thousands of tons of 
'Kansas bait', have exterminated 
grasshoppers in the whole area. With- 
out the cooperation of all the farm- 
ers, and without the high quality of 
leaders in the county farm bureaus 
and the extension department of K. 
S. A. C. it would not have been pos- 
sible to accomplish these results so 
quickly and so thoroughly." 


The "dry heat method" for the 
control of insects infesting flour mills 
and warehouses was discovered and 
developed by the K. S. A. C. depart- 
ment of entomology. This Is the 
most efficient and practical method 
known. It is used throughout the 
country and In many foreign coun- 
tries. Probably every breakfast food 
manufacturing concern in the United 
States is using heat to control Insect 

As an Instance of the thorough or- 
ganization required in these cam- 
paigns. Professor Dean gave the fol- 
lowing statistics concerning the 
grasshopper campaign of 1919: "The 
number of counties organized was 39, 
representing a total area of 33,985 
square miles, or about two-fifths of 
the entire area of the state. The 
total amount of bran mash distribu- 
ted was 4,565 tons or 183 carloads. 
This required 83 tons of white ar- 
senic, 489,000 lemons, and 83,000 
gallons of syrup. Not only were all 
of the summer crops protected, but, 
due to the fact that fully 90 per cent 
of the 'hoppers' were killed, the en- 

tire new wheat crop in the fall over 
the western third of the state was 
completely protected." 


The Influence of K. S. A. C. in pre- 
venting enormous crop losses thru 
insect ravages Is carried out Into 
other states and nations by graduates 
of the department of entomology. 
Professor Dean said. Highly success- 
ful campaigns against pests in North 
Dakota, Texas, Ohio, Idaho, and 
other places have been directed by 
Aggie alumni or men who have re- 
ceived their training on "The Hill." 

Work In Saskatchewan was con- 
ducted along the same line as the 
work in Kansas but was not directed 
by an Aggie man. The department 
has given to the country 28 entomol- 
ogists among whom are some of 
the world's foremost entomologists, 
including such men as the late Doc- 
tor Wllllston, an internationally rec- 
ognized authority on the dlptera, or 
fly family of Insects, and Doctor Mar- 
latt, _at present the associate chief 
of the federal bureau of entomology. 

Professor Dean prefaced his talk 
with a discussion of the vast Influ- 
ence exerted upon humanity by In- 
sects. He cited the fact -that vast 
areas in South America and Africa, 
although they possess abundant nat- 
ural resources, can never be made 
the seat of a civilized people until 
insect pests which produce disease 
are brought under control. He told 
of the Incursions of the black plague 
in western Europe in the fourteenth 
century, when 25,000,000 people, or 
a fourth of the population of the civi- 
lized world at that time, were swept 
away by Its ravages, and of modern 
outbreaks of the same disease 
which have been stamped out by ex- 
termination of the disseminator, the 
rat flea; of the prevention of yellow 
fever, malaria, and typhus by the 
annihilation of the insect carriers.

state club leader. 

Francis Carpenter of Wakefield 
won the scholarship in Clay county. 
He has been president of three beef 
clubs In Wakefield; has won several 
prizes on calves at Wakefield; and 
has made a profit of $50 on one 
calf. He won the silver loving cup 
given to the best club livestock judge 
in Clay county and was a member of 
the stock judging team that repre- 
sented Clay county at the Hutchinson 

The scholarship in Brown county 
was won by Eldon Miller of Hamlin, 
a senior In the Hamlin high school 
and a star In Brown county athletics. 
He conducted a farm flock project, 
making a profit of $101 on 72 birds. 

Avery Leatherman of Dunavant 
was high man in the scholarship con- 
test In Jefferson county. The flock 
of 334 birds which he raised made 
him a profit of $186. He has been 
in club work for three years. 

The Nemaha county winner was 
Wilbur Atkins of Goff. His project 
was raising 10 acres of corn. He 
has been In club work three years 
and was a member of the Nemaha

No ProKresa a* Community Center, Con- 
viction of 25 Educators Who Reply 
to K. S. A. C. Soclologlst'a 

The national controlling or dom- 
inating heads of six or seven denom- 
inations, with headquarters for the 
most part in Boston, New York, and 
Philadelphia, either are unpardonably 
Ignorant of the situation throughout 
the entire area west of them, or have 
not sufficient statesmanship to make 
a plan that will re-establish the 
American parish, or else must plead 
guilty to the old time indictment, 
"They seek their own, and not those 
things that are Jesus Christ." 

This is the conclusion of Walter 
Burr, professor of sociology in the 
Kansas State Agricultural college re- 
garding the rural church in America, 
expressed In a paper read before the 
American Country Life association in 
New York City recently. His deduc- 
tion was based upon replies to 100 
questionnaires sent to directors of 
extension and professors of rural so- 


"The writer believes," Professor 
Burr's paper continued, "that we 
need a rural church commission, 
with a pooling of funds now being 
wasted in rural home missionary 
work, and with a field agent who 
could go to a community ready for 
the parish plan and say: 'I officially 
represent all of the religious bodies 
represented here locally. Here is our 
plan for cooperating with you in 
handling your situation. We will 
put money back of the plan to assure 
Its success. We will arrange matters 
of local fellowship and world church 
funds, etc. Now let's go!' 

"Sometime we will secure the 
Christian statesmanship that will 
dare take that step," he concluded. 

Discussing in greater detail the 
replies to his questionnaire, Profes- 
sor Burr stated that the opinions 
with regard to the progress of the 
rural church as a community center 
were less uniform and therefore less 
easily Interpreted than were replies 
relating to other aspects of rural 
community organization. 


"This," he continued "is probably 
due to the fact of a wide variance of 
opinion on the fundamental question 
of the true function of the church in 
society. A number of the answers 
show, however, a considerable agree- 
ment with regard to the sort of 
church that Is succeeding or would 
succeed in the rural community. It 
must be remembered that the opin- 
ions are from the standpoint of econ- 
omists and sociologists rather than 
from professional ecclesiastics. 

"Twenty-five out of 56 replies can- 
not see that the rural church Is mak- 
ing progress as a community center. 
Some of these qualify their state- 
ments, with the frank admission that 
in isolated Instances there are out- 
standing exceptions. In noting such 
exceptions, the statement is common- 
ly made that the church referred to 
has the entire and undisputed local 
field. Among those who declare that 
the church is making progress a con- 
siderable number base the con- 
clusion upon the fact that church 
federation Is gaining ground, or that 
plans of inter-church comity are 
making progress. 


"The rural church movement must 
be considered as fundamental In the 
entire rural organization field. It 
presents, however, a unique pheno- 
menon in that field. Rural commun- 
ity organization proposes frankly to 
combat the natural Independence and 
provincialism of the rural individual. 
It proposes to bring into one func- 
tioning body all local factions so that 
they may work for the common wel- 

"The term 'community center' 
suggests a circumference, enclosing 

activities functioning from the cen- 
ter out. But the rural church as it 
developed in a previous era in our 
history runs counter, in organization 
form, to this conception of the com- 
munity. Obviously, when we get 
people converted to the community 
idea, they will break away from their 
cliques and factions, and be 'all with 
one accord in one place.' 

"After crucifying the early advo- 
cates of the church as a community 
center, the great denominations saw 
that rural people themselves wer' 
being won to the idea, and na- 
tional bodies and leaders hastened to 
get into the band wagon. To an ob- 
server who was not unduly careful 
as to whether or not he himself were 
trampled upon, and therefore could 
get a closeup, it was at once sadden- 
ing and ludicrous to see pompous 
dignitaries who had formerly tried 
to Impede this progress, jostle each 
other to get to the driver's seat. 

"There can be but one center to 
one circumference. To the extent 
that church leaders win the people to 
the community service idea, to that 
extent they destroy the idea of sec- 
tarian loyalty. So we have the ano- 
molous situation in many a local field 
of a local leader sent in to build up a 
local denomination, with the eccle- 
siastical guillotine awaiting if he fails 
to do so — and at the same time carry- 
ing a high commission and training 
to promulgate the very gospel of 
community service that will destroy 
the local denomination as' surely as 
that gospel has power to convict peo- 
ple of the sin of useless strife and di- 
vision. The writer shares with some 
of his correspondents the amazement 
at the sheer lack of logic in this sort 
of a community church movement. 

"In this matter of a unified com- 
munity church, the people are far in 
advance of their leadership. One 
may say also that local preachers 
who are close to the grief of this situ- 
ation, are far in advance of their 
leadership. The further you ascend 
(or descend, according to the view- 
point) the ladder of leadership, start- 
ing from the local community, the 
less vision and practical knowledge 
do you find with regard to this local 


"The writer and his correspon- 
dents, do not propose a definite or- 
ganization solution of the problem, 
but venture the following statement: 
"There are thousands of rural 
communities in America where re- 
ligious organiziitlon divisions are 
not based upon any differences in 
conscientious convictions on re- 
ligious matters. 

"In these communities the people 
are re.idy to come to the parish 
plan of religious organization. 

"In many of these communities 
the people are ready to come to the 
parish plan of religious organiza- 

'In many of these communities 
the ministers are ready to adopt a 
unified parish or community plan 
of religious functioning. 
"Such a plan cannot meet with 
permanent success as an Isolated lo- 
cal plan of union or federations, be- 
cause of the necessary world nature 
of the church conception. Some 
kind of connection nationally and 
universally is absolutely essential."

But Sickly Onea Are W^orae than None 

at'' all — Steady Temperature and 

Proper Water Supply Neceaaary 

to Sncceaafnl Growth 

Plants add more coziness to 
a home in the winter than any other 
beautifier, but sickly looking ones are 
worse than none at all. 

If given half a chance plants will 
do well and if they are not beautiful 
there is a good reason. Plants re- 
quire a steady temperature, that is, 
avoid extremes. Winter homes are 
kept at summer heat in the daytime 
which causes the plant to grow rapid- 
ly, shooting out tender branches 
which suffer in the cold room at 
night when the fire is low and the 
windows open. The extreme change 
makes them weakly and vulnerable 
to disease. Keep them in even tem- 


Plants suffer and die because they 
do not have enough water or be- 
cause they have too much of It. In 
furnace heated houses the air Is dry. 
Most plants like moist air. Put a 
pan of water on the raldator or. In 
the window and keep it there or 
else spray the leaves regularly. 
Plants should be watered regularly 
and thoroughly. When the soil on 
top of the pot becomes dry, place 
the pot In a pan of water half as 
deep as the pot and let the water be 
absorbed through the drainage holes 
In the bottom. Do not pour on a 
gill or two of water every time you 
pass by. If the soil is too dry the 
plants starve for food solutions; If 
it is too wet the air spaces are closed 
and the roots are denied the required 
amount of air and also they are sub- 
jected to the ravages of diseases 
which breed in the soggy ground. 
Air is as necessary to roots as water 
or soil. 


Plants require light but not too 
much of It. The direct light In a 
western window is to be avoided. 
Sunlight helps in making food — 
starch and sugar — of the materials 
from the roots and air after it has 
assembled in the leaves. Geraniums 
and roses enjoy streams of sunlight, 
but ferns and palms prefer more sub- 
dued rays. However they too must 
have a little sunlight. 

If these precautions are heeded 
and if the soil is good, plants will 
thrive and be beautiful. Soil should 
be leaf mold, garden loam or 
clean sand. Several pieces of broken 
china or coarse gravel are put In the 
bottom of the pot to provide for 
drainage. The drainage holes must 
be kept open. Too much fertilizer 
is harmful. Be moderate. Barnyard 
manure well rotted Is excellent, but 
must be used sparingly. 


Frozen plants can be restored to 
life by placing them in a dark room 
where the temperature Is a few de- 
grees above freezing. Pour cold 
water on the leaves and branches. 
Keep them under these conditions 
and continue treatment until the 
frost Is drawn out gradually. Remov- 
ing the frost too rapidly breaks down 
the tissues and the plant dies. If the 
plant is frozen beyond restoration, 
cut off the top and give the roots a 
chance to put out new shoots. 

Always cut off faded flowers or 
seed pods and pick off the dead or 
dying leaves and branches from all 

Coal and illuminating gases are 
deadly to plants. They must have 
pure air. 

Grow plants that are suited to your 
individual conditions, and have a few 
good specimens rather than a con- 
glomeration of every kind.

'86, deputy chief of staff of the 
United States army, who recently re- 
signed In the face of certain advance- 
ment to chief of staff. Mrs. Har- 
bord was seated in the cozy living 
room of her home in Manhattan. 
She straightened perceptibly in 
her chair and continued, speaking 
more rapidly. 

"Jimmle missed flunking that ex- 
amination a long way. He tied for 
first honors with a boy named Swa- 
zey from Osage City, and the other 
20 who took the examination flunked. 

And the motherly old lady pointed 
with evident pride to the commission, 
framed, and hanging in the place of 
honor upon the wall, calling atten- 
tion to its date of issue. 


"I don't remember that Jimmie 
was a particularly remarkable lad 
when he was attending K. S. A. C," 
Mrs. Harbord resumed. "Of course 
my memory isn't as good as it once 
was, but I can't recall that he did 
anything out of the ordinary. 

"He was a better student than 
most, and didn't have to spend a lot 



of time with his books, but he al- 
ways mastered everything thorough- 
ly. He took an active part in school 


"He seemed to have an Inborn love 
for army life. It came natural to 
him. George (General Harbord's 
father) served with the Fifth Illinois 
cavalry during the Civil war until 
he was discharged on account of 
disability from battle wounds. Jim- 
mie chose to take a course In military 
tactics when he came to college, al- 
though it wasn't required then as It 
is now. Lieutenant Todd, the army 
officer in charge of the military de- 
partment here at that time made Jim- 
mle a sort of protege, and that pro- 
bably had something to do with his 
strong desire to enter the service. 

"While he was in college he was 
known as one of the 'Big Four.' The 
other three were Paul Fairchild, W. 
E. Whaley, and John U. Higln- 

And here Mrs. Martha Foreman, 
sister of General Harbord, with 
whom the aged mother lives, explain-

Fairchild, president of the college 
when General Harbord was a student, 
is now a physician and writer of 
scientific medical articles, and re-

in California; and that Whaley, after 
his graduation, went into school 
work, being at one time superinten-

of the class of '86. 


"The 'Big Four' were leaders in

General Harbord Is not without

as head of the Radio Corporation of

honors from the class in telegraphy, 
a major subject In the curriculum of 
the college when he attended. 


"Jimmle strung the first telegraph 
here in his second year in school," 
Mrs. Harbord relates. "It ran from 
the college around a loop on which 
the different boarding houses were 
located. The students of telegraphy 
who stayed at these places used it 
as a telephone Is used now, sending 
messages to one another. It was

hand In copies the next morning. 

Jimmie had the Job of keeping it In 
repair after he built It." 

The mother of the second ranking 
officer In the United States army 
takes much pride in her son's ability 
to write clearly and forcefully. She 
has a file of army journals, several 
of which contain prize essays written 
by General Harbord. Twice he won 
the first prize offered annually by 
the Cavalry Journal, and once the 
first prize offered each year by the 
Infantry Journal. The essays are 
carefully written, and show his thor- 
ough grounding in the principles of 
military strategy and procedure. The 
ability to winnow out facts, and to 
put them in logical sequence, which 
afterward was demonstrated In his 
masterly handling of difficult execu- 
tive assignments, is unmistakably ap- 
parent in these essays. 


The high lights In "Jimmle's" mil- 
itary career, as viewed by his mother, 
are not those which are most familiar 
to the public. Perhaps the most 
prominent achievement. In her eyes, 
as revealed by her conversation, is 
his making the highest average In 
the examination for promotion from 
the ranks to a second lieutenancy, 
two years after he entered the ser- 
vice. The sting of that earlier fail- 
ure of appointment to West Point, 
even though It is alleviated by his 
attainment of a commission before 
the man who secured the place, still 
burns in the memory of the proud 

"And what do you think of Gen- 
eral Harbord's decision to leave the 
service?" she was asked. 

"I think Jimmie was wise," she 
replied. "He would have been placed 
on the retired list in eight years now, 
as he is 56 years of age. I know, 
and he knows, that he never would 
be satisfied on any 'retired list'. And 
he has to have something to do. It 
isn't likely that he would have a 
chance to get into any business of 
the size or of the opportunity lor 
public service that this Radio corpor- 
ation offers him if he waited until 
the retirement age. 


"On that account. It seems the 
best thing to do. Of course, In case 
of national danger, he will stand al- 
ways ready to go balik into the army 
if he can best serve America there. 

"Another reason, which he gives In 
his letter of resignation, Is that he 
has always taken a stand for greater 
opportunity for the younger army 
men. Now hundreds of officers are 
being thrown out of the service 
through the heavy reduction in of- 
ficer personnel ordered by congress, 
and his retirement may save some 
man of ability who would otherwise 
be lost to the army. 

"And maybe I think It's a wise 
decision because he will probably get 
a little vacation before he starts on 
his new job, and can come home for 
a real visit", she concluded wistfully.

Amateur Stock JudKlns Contest Alsa 

To Be Nenr Feature of Farm 

and Home 'Week 

The 1923 Farm and Home week 
at the Kansas State Agricultural col- 
lege February 5-10, offers two new 
contests open to Kansas people — an 
amateur stock judging contest for 
the championship of Kansas and a 
horseshoe pitching tournament, also 
for the state championship. 

Farm and Home Week will be 
advertised this year on every piece 
of mall sent out from Manhattan. 
Permission has been secured from 
the post office department by Fred 
Lamb, the Manhattan postmaster, to 
use a device for canceling stamps 
which will advertise the date of the 
big annual event. 

Mr. Lamb reports that there are 
about 10,000 pieces of mall sent out 
eac'E'day from the Manhattan office. 
The announcement of the date will 
probably be stamped on at least 
500,000 pieces of mall. 

The stock judging contest will be 
held Friday, February 9. It will be 
open to any resident of Kansas who 
has not had training in stock judging 
In the Kansas State Agricultural col- 
lege or any other agricultural college. 
Two classes each of dairy cattle, 
beef cattle, horses, sheep, and swine 
will be judged. Prizes will be given 
to the best judges of each class and 
a sweepstakes prize will be awarded 
to the all-round livestock judge. 

The horseshoe pitching tourna- 
ment is expected to bring to Manhat- 
tan a large number of Kansas barn- 
yard golf experts. Already there are 
three prospective entries from La- 
bette county. The tournament will be 
held in the stock Judging pavilion. 
Several courses will be laid out and 
referees will be In charge. Contest- 
ants may bring their own horseshoes.

She Corrects Statement that Her Famous Son "Flunked His West 
Point Examination"— Renowned Aggie Alumnus Rose from 
Ranks Ahead of Man with Whom He Tied for First Place in 
Entrance Test to Service School and Who Received Appoint- 
ment-One of "Big Four" iwith Fairchild, Wlialey, and fligin- 
botham, '86ers. 

"It's all of it true about Jimmle's 
doings, that story in the papers, and 
we're mighty proud of him. All 
of it's true, that is, except that he 
flunked his West Point examination," 
and here the eyes of the white haired 
old lady glinted a spark of indignant 

The righteously Indignant person 
was Mrs. Effle C. Harbord, mother 

"Jlmmle was eligible to the ap- 
pointment all right, but the other 
lad's father had more political in- 
fluence, and he got the place. 

"But then Jlmmle got a commis- 
sion before the other boy did, any- 
how. He enlisted in January, 1889, 
and was commissioned a second lieu- 
tenant July 31, 1891, before Swazey 
finished at West Point."

J. U. Hlglnbotham. 

of Major General James G. Harbord, 
•86, deputy chief of staff of the 
United States army, who recently re- 
signed in the face of certain advance- 
ment to chief of staff. Mrs. Har- 
bord was seated in the cozy living 
room of her home in Manhattan. 
She straightened perceptibly in 
her chair and continued, speaking 
more rapidly. 

"Jlmmle missed flunking that ex- 
amination a long way. He tied for 
first honors with a boy named Swa- 
zey from Osage City, and the other 
20 who took the examination flunked. 

And the motherly old lady pointed 
with evident pride to the commission, 
framed, and hanging In the place of 
honor upon the wall, calling atten- 
tion to Its date of Issue. 


"I don't remember that Jlmmle 
was a particularly remarkable lad 
when he was attending K. S. A. C," 
Mrs. Harbord resumed. "Of course 
my memory isn't as good as It once 
was, but I can't recall that he did 
anything out of the ordinary. 

"He was a better student than 
most, and didn't have to spend a lot 



of time with his books, but he al- 
ways mastered everything thorough- 
ly. He took an active part in school 


"He seemed to have an Inborn love 
for army life. It came natural to 
him. George (General Harbord's 
father) served with the Fifth Illinois 
cavalry during the Civil war until 
he was discharged on account of 
disability from battle wounds. Jlm- 
mle chose to take a course in military 
tactics when he came to college, al- 
though it wasn't required then as It 
is now. Lieutenant Todd, the army 
officer in charge of the military de- 
partment here at that time made Jlm- 
mle a sort of protege, and that pro- 
bably had something to do with his 
strong desire to enter the service. 

"While he was in college he was 
known as one o£ the 'Big Four.' The 
other three were Paul Fairchild, W 
E. Whaley, and John U. Hlgln- 

And here Mrs. Martha Foreman, 
sister of General Harbord, with 
whom the aged mother lives, explain 
ed that Fairchild, the son of G. T. 
Fairchild, president of the college 
when General Harbord was a student, 
is now a physician and writer of 
scientific medical articles, and re- 
sides in New York; that Higin 
botham is an author, who now lives 
in California; and that Whaley, after 
his graduation, went Into school 
work, being at one time superinten- 
dent of the Manhattan city schools, 
but is now dead. All were members 
of the class of '86. 

"The 'Big Four' were leaders In 
the college, I have been given to 
understand," continued Mrs. Har- 
bord, "but Jimmie never told me 
much of their exploits, or If he did 
I don't remember them. 

"Jimmie was captain of the Re- 
publican Flambeau club here and led 
them In their fancy torchlight drills 
during election campaigns, although 
he was just 20 years old when he 
graduated, and wasn't entitled to 

General Harbord la not without 
experience In or aptitude for the 
business upon which he Is to enter, 
as head of the Radio Corporation of 
America upon his retirement from 
the army, for he was graduated with 
honors from the class in telegraphy, 
a major subject in the curriculum of 
the college when he attended. 


"Jlmmle strung the first telegraph 
here in his second year In school," 
Mrs. Harbord relates. "It ran from 
the college around a loop on which 
the different boarding houses were 
located. The students of telegraphy 
who stayed at these places used it 
as a telephone is used now, sending 
messages to one another. It was 
also used for a practice In telegraphy. 
Prof. I. D. Graham, the Instructor in 
telegraphy, sending messages for an 
hour each evening over It. The stu- 
dents would 'take' the messages and 
hand In copies the next morning. 

Jimmie had the Job of keeping It In 
repair after he built It."

Mr. Lamb reports that there are 
about 10,000 pieces of mail sent out 
eac'E'day from the Manhattan office. 
The announcement of the date will 
probably be stamped on at least 
500,000 pieces of mail. 

The stock judging contest will be 
held Friday, February 9. It will be 
open to any resident of Kansas who 
has not had training in stock judging

Stark's Entrance Into Thankasivins 

Game In Second Half Starts Scor- 

Ins — Snbatttntca Plar limmt 


The game with Texas Christian 
University on Thanlcsgiving day clos- 
ed one of the most successful and 
brilliant seasons in the history of 
Aggie football. The Wildcats won 
by a score of 45 to 0, making all of 
their points in the second half. 

Stark's entrance into the game at 
the beginning of the third quarter 
marked the transforming of the con- 
test from a desultory pastime into a 
riot of touchdowns. During the en- 
tire third quarter the Horned Frogs 
from the Lone Star state did not 
once have the ball in their possession. 
Three times they kicked off clear 
over the Aggie cross bar and three 
times the Aggies, placing the ball 
on their own 20 yard line, tore 
straight down the field for touch- 
downs. Stark's work In lugging the 
ball around end, over the line, and 
through a crowded field was the 
most spectacular that has ever been 
seen here. His first gains ran from 
5 to 41 yards and he frequently made 
first downs in one attempt. 


Stark's fight seemed to inspire the 
other Aggie backs and they all began 
tearing through. Two attempts for 
a first down were about all that were 
needed. The going was so success- 
ful that the famous aerial offensive 
of the Aggies was not often resorted 
to. During ^he 16 minute period the 
Wildcats gained a total of 275 yards, 
exclusive of penalties. 

In the fourth quarter Coach Bach- 
man began sending in substitutes. 
Every man that was suited up got a 
chance in the fray. The resistance 
of the Texans had been broken and 
the Aggie second and third string 
men gained at will, adding four 
touchdowns to the majority already 
piled up. Just to prove that the 
first string team doesn't know every- 
thing about forward passing the subs 
attempted seven aerial flights, com- 
pleting Blx of them for a total of 97 


The first half of the game was a 
rather wearisome affair. Although 
the Wildcats gained 190 yards to the 
Texans' 23 they were unable to push 
the ball over for a counter. Their 
forward passes went wild for the 
most part and their playing, al- 
though brilliant, was inconsistent. 
The line bucking of Sears and the 
work of Swartz were redeeming fea- 

The Texas team failed to show 
the strength that was expected of 
them. Their defeat of Oklahoma 
Aggies, who had tied Oklahoma uni- 
versity, had led the Wildcats to ex- 
pect a harder struggle than they 
had. The Aggies made 34 first 
downs and gained a net distance of 
658 yards. The Frogs made two 
first downs and negotiated a net 
distance of 44 yards. The Wildcats 
successfully completed 9 out of 21 
passes for a total of 126 yards. The 
Texans attempted six passes, com- 
pleting one for seven yards. 


(Concluded from page five.) 
during the remainder of the season. 


The Aggies trampled Ames in the 
mire, then forward passed over the 
visitors' heads in what was without 
question the dirtiest game of the 
season, Armistice day. This particu- 
lar game gave the Wildcats their 
"Wonder Team" appellation. And 
well given the name was. A team 
which can complete 9 of 17 attempts 
at forward passes for a total of 120 
yards when they are playing against 
a dangerous opponent on a gridiron 
shoetop deep with mud and water, 
and in a driving rainstorm, is en- 
titled to be known as better than the 
average run of gridiron machines.

Clements found himself as a plung- 
ing fullback in this game also, split- 
ting open the Ames forward wall 
time after time for good gains, and 
scoring the first touchdown. Munn, 
replacing at right end the veteran 
Sebring, who was injured in practice, 
also struck his stride. He scored the 
second touchdown, taking a pass 
over the goal line. The Ames points 
were donated by the Aggies who 
chose to spot their opponents a safety 
for two points rather than to kick 
from behind the goal posts. 


Bachman's machine reached the 
zenith of its form in the Nebraska 
game on which the conference cham- 
pionship hinged. Twenty-one for- 
ward passes completed out of 41 
tried; 301 yards gained in scrimmage 
against Nebraska's 264; both Neb- 
raska attempts to pass intercepted; 
17 first downs to the winner's 14 — 
these statistics give an indication of 
the super-football the much lighter 
Aggies played against the beefy Corn- 
huskers, only to have the home team 
get the breaks and win 21 to 0. 

The Aggies made a touchdown on a 
Swartz to Stark pass in the first 
quarter, only to have it disallowed 
and a five yard penalty inflicted for 
backfleld in motion. There was a 
nasty break. Nebraska scored in the 
second quarter when Lewellen re- 
turned a ragged punt to the Wildcat 
16-yard line, then hammered on 
across. Another adverse turn in the 
luck of the game. Lewellen again 
proved the Aggie nemesis when he 
intercepted a pass on the 25-yard 
line, and got away for a touchdown 
at the start of the second half. 
Once again a Nebraska horseshoe. 


The third Cornhusker score was 
earned by Noble, who plunged 50 
yards in six consecutive plays to 
cross the last white stripe. Lincoln 
sports writers were generous in their 
tributes to the all-around efficiency 
of the Bachman machine, and the 
glory of holding the husky Huskers 
to the lowest score obtained by any 
conference team, and also of making 
more yardage than all four other 
Valley opponents of Nebraska as- 
suaged the sting of defeat. 

The final game, a Turkey day con- 
test chronicled elsewhere in this is- 
sue of The Industkialist, with Texas 
Christian university, had little signif- 
icance so far as Valley standing was 

A close inspection of the Wildcat 
record, we repeat, intensifies admira- 
tion for the speed, tight, and football 
skill of the Bachman warriors. Nev- 
er was the Aggie team outgeneraled 
or outfought during the 1922 cam- 
paign. — M. S.

College Bnlldlnsa — K. S. A. C. En- 
tertains Visitor* — Attend Man- 
hattan Chorchea Sunday 

The largest and most successful Y. 
M. C. A. state conference of older 
boys closed Sunday evaning atjter 
three crowded days of business and 
pleasure in Manhattan. The final 
meeting was conducted at the Metho- 
dist church by the combined young 
people's societies of Manhattan. Most 
of the sessions were held in build- 
ings on the K. S. A. C. campus. 

The statistics of the convention are 
unusual in comparison with previous 
conclaves. One thousand and seven 
boys had registered before the final 
meeting, with 107 towns and four 
states — Kansas Missouri, Oklahoma, 
and Nebraska — represented. 


The work of the Manhattan boys 
in handling the conference on such a 
large scale was highly praised by the 
state field secretary, B. V. Edworthy. 

"On behalf of the state Y. M. C. A. 
I wish to thank Manhattan high 
school students and faculty and all 
of those who had any part in contri- 
buting to the success of the confer- 
ence," he said. "Our thanks are

bers and workers who spent so much

"It was unquestionably one of the 
finest groups of boys ever brought 
together In one such meeting. We 
also thank the newspapers for their 
unusually large space concerning the 
conference. Manhattan's hospitality 
will go out over the state and will 
always be remembered by the boys. 
Dr. A. A. Holtz of the college 'Y' 
should be commended for the mas- 
terly way in which he handled the 
details of the conference." 

Cleo Bell, of Pittsburg, was elected 
president of the conference at the 
election held Friday. Other officers 
named are James Price, Manhattan, 
vice president; Balfour Jeffrey, To- 
peka, secretary; Clyde Merideth, Em-

Kansas Stock Judging Students Remain 
Near Top In International De- 
spite Close Competition 

The Aggie stock judging team kept 
up Its excellent 1922 record by win- 
ning third place at the International 
Livestock show in Chicago, Saturday. 
In placing among the topnotchers 
the K. S. A. C. contingent had to 
overcome the stiffest competition 
ever entered in the famous show. 
Only a few points separated the first 
and fifth place teams. 

Twenty-one teams, representing 
the leading colleges and universities 
In the United States and Canada, 
were entered in the contest. The 
first 15 were: Iowa, Purdue, K. S. 
A. C, Nebraska, Texas, Oklahoma, 
Minnesota; N. Dakota, Illinois, S. 
Dakota, Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio, 
Colorado, and Ontario. 

The K.S.A.C. team has had an ex- 
tensive tour of colleges and livestock 
farms since leaving Manhattan sev- 
eral weeks ago. After the American 
Royal, the boys went to Ames where 
they remained two days. From there 
they went to Illinois university where 
they visited the college farm and 
several large nearby farms. They 
arrived In Chicago on Friday.

Current Issue of Humor Magazine Seta 
High Standards 

The missing link is now a misnom- 
er. The troublesome controversy has 
been settled forever by the first is- 
sue of the Brown Bull, K. S. A. C. 
magazine of humor, for this year. 
Man proved himself the biggest mon- 
key, and woman was forced to take 
second place, as In the beginning. 

The management of the Brown 
Bull Is to be congratulated on the 
Improvement shown in this the "Ev- 
olution" issue. A magazine of this 
type has an advantage over other 
college publications. It is not re- 
pressed by rules and regulations. The 
result is a freedom of expression 
which is of value to an institution, 
when its execution Is guided by an 
unprejudiced mind. It gives tone to 
the college atmosphere. It assists 
in keeping the student out of the 
proverbial rut. He realizes that his 
fellow classmate has ideas and opin- 
ions as well as the man who wrote 
his text book. By a process of de- 
duction, he may even have the cour- 
age to express his own opinion — a de- 
parture which may have a vast in- 
fluence on his future. 

The editors of the Brown Bull are 
not alone in their belief that a suc- 
cessful and triumphant future is in 
store for their magazine. The organ- 
ization of the material from the first 
page to the last deserves commenda- 
tion. The page of book reviews is a 
new feature showing work of actual 
merit. The illustrations throughout 
the magazine were original. They 
were especially interesting because 
the contributors were students. 

The Aggie Primer and Jawn Pub- 
lic Speaking were evidence of the 
new standard of humor for which 
humorous college magazines are 
striving. The shorter jokes were not 
up to the standard of the longer 
articles but perfection is not ac- 
quired all at once. Give the Brown 
Bull encouragement and cooperation 
and some kindly criticism — then 
await results.

Football Mentor Points Out Value of 
Sport and Alumnus Speaks on Ameri- 
canism In Star's Educational 

Listeners in, of the Kansas City 
Star's educational program which 
was broadcast from 6 until 7 o'clock 
Saturday evening heard a talk glren 
by Charles W. Bachman, coach ot 
the Kansas Aggies, on the value and 
importance of football, and a talk 
by B. K. Baghdiglan, '16, on Ameri- 

J. B. Fitch, head of the depart- 
ment of dairy husbandry, will appear 
on the Star's radio program next 
Saturday evening. 


The series of educational addres- 
ses by members of the K. S. A. C. 
faculty Is attracting wide attention. 
Among letters received from listen- 
ers in by K. S. A. C. speakers was 
the following to Walter Burr, pro- 
fessor of sociology, from the editor 
of the Worth County (Mo.) Tribune: 

"I am writing to thank you for 
your radio talk from WDAF. It 
was fine and struck me in just the 
right spot. If possible I'd like the 
manuscript and permission to print 
it in the Tribune." 


"One of the most important things 
that football does," Coach Bachman 
said, in his address Saturday eye- 
ing, "Is to develop in the participant 
the spirt of contest. Not the quar- 
relsome vindictive spirit but the 
spirit that enables him to stand 
stoutly in the face of heavy odds, to 
come back undaunted again and 
again after repeated reverses. And 
the spirit that Is Indispensable iu 
life's battles is the logical result of 
a properly developed spirit of con- 

Then the moral and physical bene- 
fits of football were discussed very 
thoroughly. Coach Bachman told of 
the rapid strides that . the pigskin 
pastime had made In recent years. 
He cited examples where it had been 
decided to discontinue the sport of 
football and how after It had been 
discontinued, the move was soon 
found to be a mistake and It was 
taken up as one of the real necessities 
among athletic games. He told of the 
very small number of injuries in the 
game considering the great number 
of participants. 


A definition of, and an appeal for, 
Americanism was given by Mr. Bagh- 
diglan. The principles and the basic 
ideals upon which the government 
hinges were comprehensively enum- 
erated and the responsibilities and 
obligations of a democracy given. 

"The main purpose of our govern- 
ment is to see that every person is 
given an opportunity to develop the 
very best that is In him," Mr. Bagh- 
diglan said, "and at the same time 
confine individual action within the 
law in order to protect the rights and 
the interests of others. 

"Those who speak with apprehen- 
sion about the future of our govern- 
ment do not understand the prin- 
ciples upon which our republic was 
founded. They seen to be Ignorant 
that the founders deliberated over 
the mistakes and the pitfalls of oth- 
er governments and wisely profited 
from their experiences when they re- 
fused to Incorporate those qualities 
which had led other nations Into 
despotism and destruction."

ied Prealdent 

The eighth state conference of the 
Kansas Association of Deans of 
Women and Advisors of Girls was 
held last Thursday, Friday, and Sat- 
urday at K. S. A. C. Dean Mary P. 
Van Zlle, retiring president of the as- 
sociation, had charge of the pro- 
gram. The three days' session was 
opened with an address of welcome 
by President W. M. Jardine. The 
program included discussions of prob- 
lems concerning scholarships, hous- 
ing, and the future of the women's 
fraternities. An open forum and ex- 
change of experiences was held Fri- 
day afternoon. 

Members of the conference were 
guests at a reception given Thursday 
evening, by Mrs. N. W. Kimball and 
Mrs. Van Zile. Friday evening the 
delegates were entertained at din- 
ner in the new cafeteria by Mrs. Van 
Zile, and they were guests of the Y. 
W. C. A. at the annual Aggie Pop en- 
tertainment held Friday. 

Saturday morning the officers for 
the coming year were elected and the 
report of the resolutions committee 
was heard. The new officers are 
as follows: president. Miss Elizabeth 
Agnew, Fort Hays normal; first vice 
president. Miss Elizabeth Bentley, 
Baker university; second vice presi- 
dent, Miss Bertha Hamilton, Em- 
poria high school; secretary-treasur- 
er. Miss Grace Wilkie, Fairmount 

Three important resolutions drawn 
up by the committee are as follows: 
"That we recognize the generous 
attitude of the Kansas State Agri- 
cultural college in waiving its rights 
to the use of funds appropriated by 
the last legislature for dormitories, 
thus making it possible for the board 
of administration to go forward with 
their plans of building dormitories 
at the four other state institutions 
of higher learning, and that we en- 
dorse and pledge active support to 
the legislative program of the hous- 
ing committee from the Kansas coun- 
cil of women which will urge the 
legislature of 1923 to appropriate 
funds for a dormitory at K. S. A. C. 


"That we appreciate the recogni- 
tion and deference shown by the 
State Athletic association regarding 
our disapproval of girls' interschol- 
astic basketball and gladly accept 
their suggestions of cooperation in 
finding a satisfactory substitute for 
such contests. 

"That this conference urge upon 
administrators of high schools in 
Kansas the necessity of recognizing 
the work of deans or advisors of 
girls in high schools, and the im- 
portance of establishing this office 
in every high school in the state." 

These are the fifth, sixth and sev- 
enth resolutions as adopted by the 
committee, which was composed of 
Miss Caroline Matson, Dean Hattle 
Moore Mitchell, and Miss Anna Pat- 

Following is a list of the 18 dele- 
gates who attended the conference:

son, College of Emporia; Miss Grace 
Wilkie, Fairmount college; Mrs. Hattle 


"Coach Bacbman will remain 
with the Aggies next year." The 
prospects for a Valley champion- 
ship loomed high and enthusiasm 
reigned supreme when President 
Jardine made this announcement 
at the annual football banquet 
given In honor of the team by the 
chamber of commerce at the Com- 
munity house Monday. Three offers 
carrying larger salaries than he 
receives here were turned down 
by the Aggie mentor in order 
that he might stay with the Wild- 
cats to help carry the stadium 
project to completion and turn 
out a championship team.

Hahn on First Eleven, Stark and Ni- 
eholii on Second 

The all Missouri valley team as 
selected by C. B. McBride, sports 
editor of the Kansas City Star, ap- 
peared in the Sunday issue of that 
paper. McBride offers the teams as 
the composite opinions of a major- 
ity of the coaches, officials, news- 
paper men and other football critics. 

Of the leading valley teams, Ne- 
bcaska placed 12 men on the three 
mythical teams, seven of these. juen 
receiving positions on the first elev- 
en. Drake placed five men on the 
three elevens, while the Kansas 
Aggies placed four, with two men 
receiving honorable mention. 

The Aggies also placed one man 
on Walter Bckersall's second all 
western team, four other players re- 
ceiving honorable mention. 

The all state elevens, selected by 
Leslie E. Edmonds and A. G. Hill 
contained the names of five Aggie 
players, Captain Hahn being chosen 
as the leader. 

Captain Hahn won the position of 
guard on the first all valley team, 
placed on Walter Eckersall's second 
all western team, and was made 
captain of Edmond's all state team. 
This great honor shows that his 
splendid work was recognized 
throughout the west. His work at 
guard was one of the features of 
the Aggies' play this year. 

Nichols and Stark were placed on 
the second all valley team. Nichols 
also placed first on Leslie E. Ed- 
mond's all state team and received 
honorable mention from Walter Ec- 
kersall. At tackle he played a hard 
aggressive game, his fast charges 
breaking up many of the opponent's 
plays. Stark placed on Edmonds' 
second all state team and received 
honorable mention from Walter Ec- 
kersall. He proved himself one of 
the best halfbacks In the valley. A 
three-threat man, and a power on de- 
fense, he was always a man to be

Animal Huabandry Department Faculty 
Membera to National Offlcca— Col- 
lege Animala Win PrUea at In- 
ternational rixpoaltlon 

In addition to winning third 
place in the studenis' stock judging 
contest of the International Live- 
stock show, Chicag^, as announced 
in The Industrialist last week, the 
Kansas State Agricultural college 
scored in four other departments of 
the big exposition. 

Animal husbandry department 
animals ranked tli|rd in winnings 
among entrants frojn 18 colleges In 
the United States.; Two members 
of the animal huisbandry depart- 
ment were named ^s officers In na- 
tional associations, ; meeting during 
the show. Three Kansas students 
of agvicultural journalism placed 
among the first 20 entrants in the 
annual Saddle and Sirloin club es- 
say contest, tying with Illinois and 
California in the number so placed. 
The K. S. A. C. student team rank- 
ed third in a field of eight in the 
poultry judging contest. 


"This year's 'International' was 
bigger and better than ever," said 
Dr. C. W. McCampbell, head of the 
K. S. A. C. department of animal 
husbandry. "This Is the show 
where the prize winners of the var- 
ious state fairs fight it out In the 
highest court for livestock ratings. 
This fact empbasisoB the keenness 
of the competition and the honor 
In winning any kind of a prize at 
this great show." 

The animal husbandry depart- 
ment showed only a limited num- 
ber of fat sheep, fat hogs, and fat 
steers, but had the honor of win- 
ning two championships and sever- 
al first and second prizes. Al- 
though 18 colleges and universities 
were competing against K. S. A. C. 
the final averages showed only two 
ranked higher in winnings. Both 
these Institutions have received, 
during the past few years, liberal 
appropriations for the purchase of 
livestock while K. S. A. C. has not 
received appropriations for this jiur- 
pose. Animals winning both cham- 
pionships for K. S. A. C. were rais- 
ed by the college. This illustrates 
the fact that the college is conduct- 
ing its livestock breeding opera- 
tions in a practical way. 


Prof. A. M. Paterson was elected 
president of the American Dorset 
Sheep Registry association at the 
annual meeting in Chicago. Doc- 
tor McCampbell was elected presi- 
dent for the tenth consecutive year 
of the National Association of 
State Live Stock Registry boards. 

K. S. A. C. students whose essays 
ranked among the 20 placed at the 
top of the list of 173 compositions 
from 18 agricultural colleges enter- 
ed in the Saddle and Sirlion contest 
were Merle E. Goff, Manhattan; W. 
E. Myers, Eskrldge; and W. H. 
Von Treba, Oswego. Mr. Goff's es- 
say was ranked sixth, Mr. Myers' 
tenth, and Mr. Von Treba's nine- 
teenth. All are agricultural Stu- 
dents enrolled this semester in agri- 
cultural journalism, a required 
course for agricultural students, 
meeting one time a week. The es- 
says were assigned as class work, 
the best compositions being selected 
for entry in the contest. 


The three members q( the poul- 
try judging team, whlob pI»M4 third 
at Cliicago, were F. D, <Strlckler, 

Hutchinson; Ben Grosse, James- 
town; and R. B. Smith, Raton, N. 
M. Prof. Loyal F. Payne was the 
team coach. Mr. Strlckler was high 
man in judging exhibition stock for 
which he receiv;ed a gold medal. 
Mr. Grosse was sixth individual and 
Mr. Strlckler seventh individual in 
the entire contest.

Mlaa Sniith and Mr. LIndqaiat Cloae 
Seriea Sunday 

In the last recital of the series 
given by the faculty of the music de- 
partment Sunday, Elsie H. Smith, 
pianist, William Llndquist, baritone, 
and Helen M. Colburn, accompanist, 
appeared on thei program. Their 
program only emphasized their pre- 
vious reputations for excellency. 

Each of Miss Smith's numbers was 
given with an almost fastidious in- 
terpretation. Her tones were dis- 
tinct and full of melody and her ex- 
pression showed a complete under- 
standing and appreciation of each 
selection. One of the most popular 
numbers was the stately njovement 
of the "German Dances" by Beeth- 
oven. The "Fantasia" by Chopin 
demonstrated splendid versatility on 
the part of the pianist, for to each 
movement, whether grave, dramatic, 
or emotional, was given real individ- 
uality. It was "Allegro Apassionate" 
by Saint-Saens that showed Miss 
Smith's excellent techinque. In this 
composition her tones were unusual- 
ly clear. 

Professor Lindquist's program 
was proof of his being a singer of 
much training and skill. His first 
group of songs was sung In Italian, 
the second In French, and the last in 
English. Professor Llndquist has a 
voice of extraordinary musical qual- 
ity and flexibility. Perhaps the one 
quality that makes him most appre- 
ciated is the personality that he puts 
into each song. His rendition of 
"Adamastor, rio des vaques profon- 
des" from L'Africaine" by Meyer- 
beer demonstrated fine voice control 
and In this song the staccato notes 
were especially good. 

In the group of English songs, "I 
Have a Rendezvous with Death" by 
Horsfal was splendidly sung but 
probably no other number was more 
appreciated than the simple charm- 
ing "Sing to Me, Sing" by Homer. 

Professor Lindquist's program con- 
tained two surprising numbers. One 
was "Lay Low in de Wildaness" by 
Prof. Ira Pratt, head of the college 
music department. This song, a typi- 
cal negro spiritual, was inter- 
esting. The other number was 
"Self" by Robert Gordon of the mu- 
sic department. This song deserves 
special mention both from the writ- 
er's and the singer's standpoints. 

The series of recitals has been 
well attended and the music depart- 
ment has given real service to the 
community in offering programs of 
the best music by talented musicians.

That professors of the Kansas 
State Agricultural college play an 
important role in scientific affairs of 
the state and nation is attested by 
the large number who fill Important 
positions in organizations concerned 
with their various lines of endeavor. 
While few of the national organiza- 
tions hold their meetings in Kansas, 
agricultural college faculty members 
are widely known and take an active 
part in different scientific associa- 


Inquiry about the college campus 
disclosed the fact that nearly every 
department has one or more members

l8 Andrew J. Volstead a greater 
man than was Abraham Lincoln? 
Does Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 
represent greater literary distinction 
than Dante? Is Thomas A. Edison 
the greatest scientist the world has 
ever known? 

Questions such as these come in- 
stantly to mind when one reads the 
list of the greatest men in history se- 
lected by some hundreds of thou- 
sands of members of the Epworth 
league — fairly typical young men 
and women of the United States. 
This is the list: 

Thomas Alva Edison 
Theodore Roosevelt 
William Shakespeare 
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 
Alfred Tennyson 
Herbert Hoover 
Charles Dickens 
John J. Pershing 
David Lloyd George 
Andrew J. Volstead 
The list stacks up about as fol- 
lows: One distinguished inventor, 
who holds, however, somewhat ab- 
surd views in other fields than that 
of his inventions; a generally hon- 
ored American publicist and presi- 
dent; the greatest dramatist in the 
history of the world; a minor Amer- 
ican poet; a talented poet, highly 
provincial; however, as to both time 
and place; a prominent engineer, 
perhaps the ablest member of Presi- 
dent Harding's cabinet; one of the 
leading English novelists; the rank- 
ing American general, concerning 
whose abilities most of us know so 
little about military strategy as to be 
competent to express a useful opin- 
ion; an English politician, consid- 
ered by most of his countrymen to 
be hardly a statesman; the author 
of the federal act governing the en- 
forcement of the prohibition amend- 

In the group, It will be noticed, 
are the names of no religious lead- 
ers, no philosophers, no painters, no 
musical composers, no sculptors, no 
educators. According to this list, 
moreover, the greatest men have in- 
variably been found among those 
who speak the English language and 
who have lived either in England or 
in the United States. Furthermore, 
with the single exception of Shakes- 
peare, greatness is confined to the 
nineteenth and twentieth centuries. 

Even within this limited period, 
how inadequate the choices! What of 
Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, 
John Keats, William Morris, Bmlle 
Zola, Claude Debussy, August Rodin, 
Ouglielmo Marconi, Albert Einstein, 
John Stuart Mill, John Ruskin, 
George Meredith, Pierre Cozanne — to 
mention just a few names that oc- 
cur readily to mind? Charles Dar- 
win may perhaps have been excluded 

from the young people's list because 
of a feeling that bis teachings are 
anti-religious, but certainly he was 
no less orthodox than Thomas Edi- 

If we take a more extended view 
of history, we see that in the opin- 
ion of these young people Andrew J. 
Volstead, Herbert Hoover, and John 
J. Pershing are greater figures than 
any of the Old Testament prophets, 
the Greek dramatists, the Hindu sa- 
ges, the Roman state builders, the 
saints of the middle ages, the artists 
of the renaissance, the leaders of the 
reformation, the builders of modern 
political and economic thought. 

What does this signify? These 
members of the Epworth league are 
average young Americans — or per- 
haps above-average young Ameri- 
cans, high school students and high 
school graduates. What does it mean 
that they have no perspective as to 
th^ past and no discrimination as to 
the present? For one thing it means 
that something is wrong with Amer- 
ican education. These young people 
have no standards of judgment — and 
apparently no information on which 
to use standards of judgment if 
they had them. Some student of 
the science of education should rise 
and tell us just what Is the matter 
with education that produces such 
results. Un.ier such circumstances, 
what is the future of democratic 
government, of civilization itself?

"You found this mistake your- 
self?" asked the editor quietly. 

"Sure I did. It kinda gets on 
one's nerves to see so many bad 
breaks in a paper." 

"I always enjoy talking to an edu-

exaggerated seriousness. "Do you

walks like a great cat through the 
air and slowly devours the city . . The 
office buildings vanish, leaving be- 
hind thin pencil lines and smoke

lated, low-roofed corridors. Over- 
head the electric signs whisper enig-

solve. The fog thickens till the city 
disappears. High up where the mists 
thin into a dark, sulphurous glow 
roof bubbles float. The great cat's 
work Is done. It stands balancing 
itself on the heads of people and 
arches its back against the vanished 
buildings. — Ben Hecht In "1001 Af-

An Engineering Statesmanship 

CaiHutJ. K«vstrin "Mathematical Philosophy' 

1 propose to define engineering to be the science and 
art of directing the time-binding energies of mankind, — 
the civilizing energies of the world, — to the advancement 
of the welfare of man. 

That conception does not represent engineering as it 
has been practiced In the past nor as It Is practiced today. 
It represents an Ideal which engineering will approxi- 
mate more and more just In proportion as it becomes 
more and more humanized and enlightened. The ideal 
is an inspiring one; but It ought not to flatter the vanity 
of professional engineers; it ought rather to give them a 
feeling of humility. For consider Its spirit and its 

Its spirit is not a self-serving spirit nor a class-serv- 
ing spirit nor any provincial spirit; It Is a world-serving 
spirit — the spirit of devotion to the wellbeing of all man- 
kind including posterity. 

And what is Its scope? Is it confined to the kinds of 
work done today by professional engineers in the name 
of engineering? It is by no means thus confined; Its 
scope is Immeasurably greater; for, over and above such 
work, which no one could wish to belittle, it embraces 
whatever may be intelligent, humane, and magnanimous 
In the promotion of science, in the work of educational 
leadership, in the conduct of industrial life, in the estab- 
lishment and administration of justice — in all the affairs 
of a statesmanship big enough to embrace the world. 

I am facing the future, and I say "in all the affairs 
of statesmanship" because I do not doubt that the affairs 
of state, — which are the affairs of men, — will at length be 
rescued from the hands of "politicians" and be commit- 
ted to a statesmanship because it will guide itself and 
the affairs of state in scientific light by scientific means.

Members of K. B. A. C. Clasaea from >8e 

to '23 Have Revnlar Pep Meeting 

at Annnal Bamqnet 

K. S. A. C. must have a stadium! 

Grads attending the annual ban- 
quet of the Chicago alumni club on 
Thursday evening, December 7, re- 
sponded with cheers when Dr. C. W. 
McCampbell, '06, B. M. Anderson, 
'16, and Ray B. Watson, '21, made 
the statement. Inspired with the 
same brand of pep that had urged 
different Aggie teams to "twist the 
Tiger's tail" or "pluck that Jayhawk 
bird," they swung into the old Aggie 
yell and followed it with "Glory, 
Glory, Hallelujah! We are 
marching on!" There were 

more cheers — not perfunctory, but of 
the regular pep meeting variety — 
when they were told that Doctor 
Jardlne is a "real" president and 
that the Aggies have "the greatest 
football coach in America." 

The evening was Just that peppy. 
Unless you brought yourself down to 
earth, it was hard to realize that the 
event was taking place in the club 
rooms of a Chicago office building 
and that Just a little while before, 
with the customary cynicism of a 
Chicagoan and a journalistic nose on 
duty, you had noted that the eleva- 
tor operator had partaken of his 
dally allowance of garlic. But up 
there on the eleventh floor, it re- 
quired little imagination to coast 
back through a few years and put 
yourself on the college "hill" again. 
The year or the division did not count 
for much for there were not many 
gaps In the representation of the 
years from '86 to '23. 


These people were talking "K. S. 
A. C", "Aggie team," and "stadium." 
Familiar names were floating In the 
air from every side — Nichols, Wat- 
ers, Ahearn, Jardlne, Wlllard, Wal- 
ters, Dean Thompson, ad infinitum. 
There was unloosed a flood of mem- 
ories — neither, dusty nor moth 
eaten — memories that always will be 
tucked away nearest the heart. Tru- 
ly, the spirit of the "hill" was there. 
Everyone seemed just bustln' to rem- 
inisce about "away back when" and 
everyone else within ear shot was 
eager to listen. 

Five members of the class of 
'95 stood and challenged any othe'r 
class to present a larger number. 
One family of five engineers of the 
class of '22, who maintain their 
own apartment at 232 North Latrobe 
avenue, met the challenge and five 
other members of the same class 
doubled it. The class of '16 an- 
swered with six members present and 
the class of '21 equalled the '95 rep- 


Up there at the head of the "K" 
— the table was arranged that way — 
was David G. Robertson, '86, presi- 
dent of the Chicago club since Its or- 
ganization, whose law office has been 
a clearing house for Information 
about K. S. A. C. people for these 
many years. Over at the end was 
Ralph Snyder, '90, "the only dirt 
farmer in the bunch." Farm bureau 
and politics are only his pastime. He 
said he felt very much embarrassed. 
And at the right of David G., the 
aforesaid Scottish master of cere- 
monies, was a good looking young 
lady who holds the love and admi- 
ration of an Inestimable number of 
former grads. " You couldn't guess 
wrong — same brand of happiness, 
smile and everything — Estella Boot, 
former English faculty member, who 
is working for a Ph. D. (She con- 
fided that she was "sweating blood" 
writing themes now-a-days, if that 
will be a source of satisfaction to 

Down there at the far end of the 
"K," that fellow with the contagious 
brand of enthusiasm and the big 
smile that never wears oft — the on^ 
who started the singing — "Pull your 
shades down, Mary Ann" — was 

Charles P. Blachly, '05. And oft 
there In the corner was Harlan Sum- 
ner, '16, and Jay Lush, '16, (where 
is Jo Sweet — and Mary?) who started 
up with "Ma, he's making eyes at me," 
in response. And right in the mid- 
dle of the room, the handsome young 
chap who bounded upon the table 
and led the Aggie cheering? Sure! 
Ray Bates Watson, the Aggie Olym- 
pian sprinter. The quiet, serious 
like almnus who joined loudest in 
the demonstration is one whose edi- 
torial opinions carry more weight 
than any other In the agricultural 
field — Floyd B. Nichols, '12, manag- 
ing editor of the Capper farm pub- 


The ladies? They were there! 
You couldn't tell Alyce Carter and 
Vera McClellan, '21'ers, from Chi- 
cago flappers. The bright and shin- 
ing faces of Rose Baker, '17, and 
Florence Justin, '16, recalled many 
a hard battle they had fought to up- 
hold Aggie laurels in debate. They're 
working for masters' degrees. Selma 
Nelson, '12, hospital superintendent; 
Rose Straka, '18, hospital dietitian, 
and Dr. Chloe M. Willis, '09, (note 
the "Dr.") show the kind of stuff 
the Aggie girls are made of. 

There were others there — dozens 
of them — but only one lone reporter 
who had a big job of visiting to do 
himself. Something would be miss- 
ing, however, if we did not acclaim 
to all the world that J. C. Holmes — 
the Aggie gridiron's own "Jake" — 
was among those present. He was 
going to catch a train every few 
minutes and thus avoided making a 
speech, but he was there until the 
lights went out. And a Blizzard, '10, 
blew In from Oklahoma. Every story 
he told was different from those that 
are burned into the memory of form- 
er "A. H." students. The best one was 
— but Oley wired to "hold it to 500 
words." Anyway, when he got 
through, Gertrude (Lyman) Hall and 
Mabel (Crump) McCauley, '97ers, 
varied the program by starting up 
"Jingle, Jingle Bells." 

Did we have a good time? Did 
we! Among those who should shed 
tears of chagrin and repentance, the 
following names were mentioned at 
the affair: Harlan Smith; '11; Clem- 
entine Paddleford, '21; Harold Snell, 
'17; Ivar Mattson and wife; L. G. Al- 
ford, '18, and Helen (Dawley) Al- 
ford, '20; W. A. Lathrop, '15, and 
wife; L. B. Mann, '15, and Agnes 
(McCorkle) Mann, '17; and Horace 
Williams, '17, and — well, not yet. 


There was a note of intense seri- 
ousness In the voice of Floyd B. Ni- 
chols when he made a plea for a 
strong alumni association, an asso- 
ciation that will bind the graduates 
together and lend their combined 
enthusiasm and support to further- 
ing the progress and ideals of their 
alma mater. "The alumni assocla- 
iton can be no stronger than the av- 
erage member," he said. "The al- 
umni must act as the board of direc- 
tors of a commercial organization 
and each must consider himself an 
employee, anxious to promote the 
best interests of the association and 
the college on the 'hill.' " The plea 
was most appropriate, for Ray Wat- 
son had just finished reading a com- 
munication from Oley Weaver, exec- 
utive secretary of the alumni asso- 
ciation, In which he had urged Chi- 
cago alumni to perfect a strong or- 

When the speeches were concluded 
Chairman Robertson appointed a 
nominating committee to present can- 
didates for officers for the coming 
year. Ray Bates Watson, president; 
Charles P. Blachly, vice president; 
and Rose Straka, secretary; were 
suggested and unanimously elected. 
Moreover a constitution and bylaws 
were adopted, and the machinery for 
a stronger organization now is ready. 
The election was followed with three 
rousing cheers for David G. Robert- 
son, the wheel horse of K. S. A. C.

CampalSB Committee— OfBeera 

Named at Baaanet 

At the alumni banquet In the 
Hotel Lassen Saturday evening, De- 
cember 9, Wichita and Sedgwick 
county alumni effected a local or- 
ganization, elected officers, and 
chose a chairman for the stadium 

Dr. R. V. Christian, '11, was 
chosen president of the alumni

Scott, '08, Pobits with Pride 

John M. Scott, '03, Gainesville, 
Fla., believes that the University of 
Florida team "made a mighty good 
showing against Harvard." He is 
also proud of the fact that the Ala- 
bama "Rats," the freshman team, 
have not been defeated this season, 
and that the Gainesville high school 
team has yet to lose a 1922 game. 

Further causes for expansion of 
the Scott chest are that the animal 
husbandry department of the U. of 
F. took 18 head of cattle to the state 
fair, and came home with 21 ribbons 
and $370 in cash. He considers the 
showing made a good one, as this 
was the second appearance of col- 
lege stock at the state fair. 

Coloradoans Plan Meeting 
Walter Olln, '89, and G. C. Wheel- 
er, '95, both of Denver, are making 
medicine for a meeting of Colorado 
alumni In Denver during the annual 
stock show. The K. S. A. C. animal 
husbandry professors, and the mem- 
bers of the student Judging teams, 
and other Aggies who attend the 
show will be the guests of the Colo- 
rado group at the meeting. 

Attention, Calif ornlans! 

Kansas Aggies living In central 
California plan to get together Fri- 
day evening, January 12, at the 
Claremont hotel, Berkeley, Cal., for 
a banquet. Price $1.50 per plate. 
Dress, Informal. Those planning to 
attend please write V. C. Bryant, '09, 
University of California, or phone 
him, Berkeley, 1643W. Alumni or 
former students in California whose

banquet as an opportunity to renew 
old ties. Those going from San Fran- 
cisco should take the Key route ferry, 
then a Claremont car to the end of 
the line.

New Cafeteria Offera Greater Oppor- 
tunltlea for GItIdk Instruction — 
Gradnaten Wlio Majored in it Suc- 
cemfal — »1eld In Varied 

Institutional classes in the homo 
economics division are proving 
more popular each year, and with 
the completion of the new cafeteria, 
It is expected that next semester's 
class will be several times as large 
as the class this semester. The 
field of work for which members of 
these classes are being prepared is 
varied. The class work prepares 
students to direct cafeterias and tea 
rooms, to be dietitians, or to be 
heads of hotel dining rooms. 


K. S. A. C. has a number of alumni 
who have outstanding positions as 
dietitians and in tea room and cafe- 
teria work. The department receives 
more requests for graduates than it 
can fill. 

Members of the class of '22 who 
chose Institutional work as their elec- 
tives are succeeding in the work. 
Marguerite Bondurant is assistant 
director of the Innes Tea room in 
Wichita. Ruth Peck was assistant 
director of the Y. W. C. A. cafeteria 
at Salt Lake City but at present is 
with the Y. W. C. A. cafeteria at 
Hutchinson. Marlon Chandler Is as- 
sistant director of the work in the 
Y. M. cafeteria at Tulsa, Okla. Carol 
Knostman is teaching in Bethel col- 
lege and directing the dining room. 

Graduates of the class of '21, who 
took their electives in institutional 
work, have been successful in practi- 
cing their vocations. 

Vinnie Drake, assistant director of 
the K. S. A. C. cafeteria, was direc- 
tor of the food unit In the Y. W. C. 
A. residence in Dallas, Tex. Alice 
Mustard is a member of the faculty 
at Washington State college and di- 
rects the cafeteria work. Gladys Ad- 
dy was in Salt Lake City but is now 
managing the Y. W. cafeteria at El- 

Charlotte Ayers has been manag- 
ing the Topeka Y. W. cafeteria since 
she left school. Elsa Ann Brown is 
at the head of a tea room in Hast- 
ings, Nebr. Florence Mather is di- 
recting the work in the Y.W. cafeter- 
ia in Wichita. Ursula Senn is head 
dietitian in the Buffalo City hospital 
In Buffalo, N. Y. Esther Wright is 
head dietitian In the Shreveport 
Charity hospital at Shreveport, La. 

his habit of keeping in splendid phys- 
ical condition has earned him a place 
among the best linesmen In the con- 
ference. He was placed on all Mis- 
souri valley teams by each of the 
sport writers of this section choos- 
ing a mythical eleven. He takes the 
place vacated by Captain Ray Hahn 
who will be graduated in June. 

More than 300 attended the foot- 
ball banquet to pay tribute to the 
winning football teams of the college 
and the high school. Each team lost 
but one game during the season. An 
appreciation of his sportsmanship 
and coaching ability was presented 
to Coach Bachman by S. A. Bard- 
well, president of the chamber of

Dr. Helen B. Tliompaon Agrees Hour's 

ThlnltinK Can Hardly Involve as 

Many Calories as one Good Yawn 

—Reads Science Club Paper 

"Brain work is not work in the 
sense of measurable transformation 
of energy which varies with the 
weight of thought. The whole ner- 
vous system including the brain Is 
small in comparison with the total 
weight of the body. It may be that 
brain work does involve energy trans- 
formations, but our instruments are 
not delicate enough to show this. 
So far as we now know, however, 
the Brewsters are correct when they 
say in their popular discussion of 
the 'Measure of Human Work' that 
'an hour's thinking can hardly in- 
volve so many calories as one good 
yawn at the end.' " 

Thus did Dr. Helen B. Thompson, 
dean of home economics, discuss the 
relationship of food to work and food 
to the well being of the human being 
in general In a paper entitled "Three 
Square Meals a Day" read before the 
Science club at its December meet- 
ing. Other abstracts from the paper 


"The study of calorie values of 
foodstuffs and of the calorie meas- 
ure of physiological work has been 
scientifically exact, yet it Is in the 
selection of food representing the 
energy requirements that mankind 
can safely trust to his instincts. That 
is, because of our physiological de- 
mands for energy, we come nearer to 
selecting day by day the right total 
energy than the right assortment of 
nutrients. But take the world over, 
the total energy needs are badly met. 
Poverty limits the food supply, false 
standards and peculiar habits may 
influence toward the wrong choice. 
It is easy to keep one's plane of nu- 
trition above or below the optimum 
for work and health. 

"The knowledge of the potential 
energy of food materials Is spread- 
ing rapidly. The children learn the 
word nutrition at school; surplus 
energy and body weight are being 
discussed in all circles; the humorist 
employs the word 'calorie' — when he 
does not prefer vitamlne — in all his 
best jokes. There is something hum- 
orous about calories. 


"People of assured incomes and 
established social positions usually 
consume too many. The fact that we 
are not all obese gives no proof of 
self restraint. We may have been 
made sick- often enough to teach 
moderation. We have always laugh- 
ed at the fat man for he is usually 
willing to join in the laugh and we 
shall soon be able to laugh at the 
fat woman for she is beginning to 
take herself as a joke since she has 
been reading 'Diet and Health with 
Key to the Calories." 

"I have not urged the inclusion 
of cabbage or the exclusion of pie 
from the daily dietary. The more 
our knowledge is extended, the more 
we realize that safety lies in variety 
of food with less cooking than our 
grandmothers did. It is wise to se- 
lect food you like to eat provided 
those foods are wholesome for you 
and are cooked by methods suitable 
to the substances contained. Wheth- 
er fried, fricasseed, or a la mode, 
served cafeteria style, or by the ex- 
pert waitress foods should be selec- 
ted to supply the physiological needs 
of the body and the teaching of cor- 
rect food habits to children should 
be regarded as a task of no small 
importance by the adults of the fam- 

schools is being planned by the auth- 
or. The first edition has been ex- 

Orders for the manual have been 
received from coaches throughout the 
middle west and from other sections 
of the United States. One order 
came from Hawaii. A high school 
coach at Champaign, III., the seat of 
the University of Illinois, sent an 
order for a copy of the manual. 

Bachman's book is the only high 
school football manual on the mar- 
ket. It incorporates a simplified sys- 
tem modeled after that of the Kan- 
sas Aggies, which in turn was mod- 
eled after that of Notre Dame, Bach- 
man's alma mater. 




Miss Araminta Holman Discasses Es- 
sentials of Tasteful Decorating and 
Home FarnisbinK 

A tasty dish is chocolate pop corn, 
made by pouring a chocolate syrup 
over freshly popped corn. 

"The wall paper that is more in- 
teresting than the hostess Is really 
Impertinent," said Miss Araminta 
Holman, head of the department of 
applied art at K. S. A. C. recently. 
She developed the thought, enabling 
a reporter to present additional ideas 
conceririg taste in household furn- 

Furnishings may be done artistical- 
ly without following rigidly all rules 
of art, according to Miss Holman, 
but there are a few principles which 
must not be discarded. There must 
be fitness, proportion, simplicity, 
harmony, and durability. There 
should be a key of color to which 
all tints should bear relation. 

Pictures hold a foremost place in 
the decoration of a house, and few 
of us know how or where to hang 
pictures. There are those who think 
that the purpose of pictures is pure- 
ly utilitarian — to cover up spots on 
the wall paper. Some consider mere- 
ly that a picture is a picture and 
therefore to be hung. We should 
select our pictures as we do our 
books — for the pleasure and inspira- 
tion we receive from them. Pictures 
should be chosen with an eye to col- 
or harmony and line arrangement 
and a general fitness for the room in 
which they are to hang. 

"Carpets are also important in the 
furnishings of the tasteful home. In 
choosing carpets, select those which 
are good in design. Carpets that 
have large, separate spots of strong 
color are bad. Carpets covered with 
naturalistic designs of roses are not 
pleasing. The simple old fashioned 
carpets which have little definite de- 
sign are among the best. Rugs should 
be few in number and rich and 
quiet in color," said Miss Holman. 
"The treatment of the walls plays 
an important part in the final ef- 
fect of a room. Large, pronounced 
figures and all strong contrasts of 
light or dark or conflicting colors 
should be avoided. 

"Above all, a room must have unity. 
The things in a room must have their 
proper relative positions. The peo- 
ple are the most important, then the 
pictures, after that the furniture and 
lastly the walls and floors. In a true 
home every room should be a living 
room. Every room should be usable 
and there is no place in the modern 
home for rooms set aside for com- 
pany, full of ghostly furniture and 
kept only for show. It is not the 
richest house which is the most hos- 
pitable and no one need be discour- 
aged in the attempt to be hospitable 
by want of money. Those of small 
means have the power to give them- 
selves, and so exercise the true spirit 
of sincere hospitality. 

J. B. Fitcb Gives Address on Subject 

by Radio Througb Kansas 

City Star 

"We have heard much of late 
about the serious condition of our 
farmers and it is true that prices of 
farm products are seriously out of 
line as compared with the things the 
farmer has to buy," said Prof. J. B. 
Fitch, head of the Kansas State Ag- 
ricultural college dairy department, 
in an address broadcasted by the 
Kansas City Star Saturday. "The 
farmer with his Investment, long 
hours of work, and uncertainty of 
obtaining a crop is getting less for his 
work than men In other lines of 
work without a dollar invested. 

"This condition of affairs has 
caused many farmers to make 
changes in their system of farming 
and in general the tendency has been 
to work out a more diversified plan 
based upon a more, general use of 
livestock. The farmers who have 
had a few cows to milk, some eggs 
to sell, and a few hogs have gone 
through these adverse time
